Near Kodachrome Basin, Grosvenor Arch is a must-see if you are in the area. The arch was named after Dr. Gilbert Grosvenor, one of the presidents of the National Geographic Society, after an expedition to the area by the Society. They named the arch after an expedition to the area in 1947. The arch is dramatic and stunning , towering 150 feet up the cliff above the surrounding area and spanning 92 feet.
The arch is easy to visit, with a good dirt road that is passable to most vehicles, EXCEPT WHEN WET! Stay out of here if the road is muddy; it can become difficult to impassable quickly. A concrete sidewalk goes from the parking area to the arch, making this accessible to most.
From Cannonville Utah, go south on Main Street. This becomes Kodachrome Road and Cottonwood Canyon Road. Follow this road about 7 miles to the signed junction with Kodachrome Basin on the left.
The arch is visible from the parking area, though taking the short sidewalk leads to better views!
There are benches and a pit toilet at the parking area.
