Easy. The road alternates between smooth, well-packed sand and mild rocky sections. You may not need 4-wheel drive unless the road is wet. The sandy road around Lone Rock (a.k.a. Prostitute Butte) can be rutted following heavy rains. Hike to arch if you don't feel confident that your vehicle can make it. The road to final overlook has a few small ledges but is still easy. Route-finding is simple, except the road to overlook is very faint at the beginning. This trip is suitable for stock 4-wheel-drive SUVs when dry.
