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.

  • Even though Cottonwood Canyon Road is long and dirty, the Arch was worth the trip. We did other hikes along the way to break up the driving time, but beware that the road is very bumpy and dusty...

  • The road i took in is a bit bumpy but easy to drive, there was one section that had a big dip filled with water, you will definitely not want to take a small car. There are other entrances to get there but I don't know where they are located. The arches are amazing and you can walk super close to it. It was just an amazing place to see, definitely don't skip it.
  • Rough ride, but fun with 4 wheel drive. Beautiful views, quiet, and hot. Worth the drive!
