Royal Arch
Royal Arch    This beautiful arch is located in the South Rim area of the Grand Canyon. It has a span of 65 ft. as well as an opening height of 65 ft. The "standard" Royal Arch hike makes a big loop; but if viewing the arch is the main interest, one can hike to the arch and return by the same route. To get an idea of the nature of this multi-day backcountry hike, go to Dr. Rob Jones's trip report.
