Jacob Hamblin Arch, one of the most beautiful arches in the United States, has a span of 100 feet and is number 6-5 in the Vreeland catalog. It is located in Coyote Gulch in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, about half way between the Coyote Gulch backpacking trailhead and the Escalante River. It can also be reached as a day hike from the water tank on the 40-Mile Ridge road, but only if you don't mind hiking down and back up a very steep and possibly hazardous rock fin immediately to the east of the arch. The photo above is a view of the west side of the arch (Erv Kranzler pictured). The photo below is a view of the east side of the arch. The bottom photo is taken from the rim of Coyote Gulch on the west side of the arch. The person seen at the very bottom of the photo (in a white shirt) is your faithful webmaster.
