Create an itinerary including Grosvenor Arch
Grosvenor Arch is a unique sandstone double arch located within Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument in southern Kane County, Utah, United States. It is named to honor Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor (1875–1966), a president of the National Geographic Society, publishers of the National Geographic Magazine.
Located in northern Kane County, it is close to and south of Kodachrome Basin State Park and is accessed from the north or south via Road 400, a dirt road that traverses Cottonwood Canyon in the western portion of the national monument.

The site is well maintained and has an outhouse restroom and cement benches. There is a concrete sidewalk that goes almost to the base of the arch which is handicap accessible.

  • The road to get to the arch is 10 miles of dirt. High clearance vehicles probably best. Do not attempt if road is wet! There are a couple of gravel "overpasses" you must navigate. The arch is cool, but it is a lot of driving just for the arch...
  • On your way from Tropic to Cottonwood Canyon and southbound on its a surprising detour. Park your car at the day use parking and walk the few steps towards this extraordinary natural monument. And don't forget to bring your own water because like most of Grand Staircase National Monument's sites it's pretty remote here...
