Grosvenor Arch is 2 sandstone arches, and is enormous at about 150 feet tall and about 100 feet wide. It is a short easy walking trail, but is a long around 10 mile long drive on dirt roads to get to the parking trailhead area. Unfortunately when you get done, there is not many other hikes around, so it works as a great hike in the middle of the day when you want to enjoy a drive and not a long hike in the hot sun. You can pair Grosvenor Arch with a drive through Kodachrome Basin for more beautiful scenic views.

I think if you enjoyed this hike, you would also LOVE Tower Arch, Arches National Park. It is not as crazy busy as the rest of the park, and it is very cool. The trail can be tricky, so if you are going make sure you download a Gaia Map, and have a external GPS. There are sandy areas here that they try and mark Cairns for you, but it is simple to get off the trail, for the footsteps get blown away daily.
