Pumphouse Wash Arch
Pumphouse Wash Arch Drive south from Flagstaff on I-17 to the Kelly Canyon exit (Exit 331). Turn right (west) and drive FR 631 about a mile to to a gravel pit. Stay to the left, above the pit and continue as far as you feel safe following the rough farm road. Park and hike to the end of the road which is about 3 miles from the freeway. Hike into a dry, gnarly ravine which empties in 200 yards into Pumphouse Wash . Turn left into Pumphouse Wash (downstream), and hike the left shoreline (left going down stream) for about a mile. Watch for the arch where the canyon narrows just below a major side canyon (James Canyon) on your left (NE). The arch is in the streambed and usually has water surrounding it. The UTM coordinates for Pumphouse Wash Arch are about 12S 434407E 3877877N; WGS84 at about 6000 ft. elevation.
