Muffin Arch
    In the authorís opinion, Muffiin Arch is one of the most interesting arches in the Maze District. Hike the Ernieís Country route between the TH and the Doll House to where it crosses Sweet Alice Canyon, the canyon containing Muffin Arch (note that Muffin Arch is incorrectly marked on many maps, but all place it somewhere in Sweet Alice Canyon). Hike up Sweet Alice canyon for about 2+ miles. You will see 27-UT-591 on the south-facing side of a wall. Hike up-canyon for a few hundred feet from 27-UT-591, then turn left, west, and hike the winding small drainage to avoid the cryptobiotic soils. Hike about half mile from the main wash, and begin scanning to the SW for Muffin Arch which is at UTM 12S 587764E 4224225N, WGS 84.
