Be sure to stop here if you are travelling by. Easy trail with steps down to the waters edge. Arches are amazing. So cool. Worth the stop.

Very interesting write up on the Arches and a quick stop on the way up the coast. Also an excellent place to Boondock overnight. Out houses available through the summer
