Perry, you could check out Rattlesnake Canyon. It's definitely a cool spot, and it's 4.5 miles of easy hiking to see all the arches. It's not a loop hike, just an up-and-back route. If you were to check it out in February, be advised that the access roads are closed from February 15 through April 15. I've still just been the one time, but really want to get back there.

Another canyon in the Black Ridge Canyons Wilderness is Mee Canyon, which has a few more arches. It's a lengthier hike, but I can't recall all the details, and am unable to find a link I had for it. I have yet to go there, but it, too, is enticing.

Darren, thanks for the info. Maybe them closing the access roads will get my but in gear.
