5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Enjoy a short hike to the base of this natural attraction and the rest of El Malpais NM in NM. It has wheelchair access to it.

“Worth stopping for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Not as great as some of the arches in Utah, but well worth a stop. The surrounding views are great as well.

“Solitude”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

A bit off the beaten path, and a wonderful place to appreciate the solitude of the NM high desert. The arch is beautiful, and worth the detour off of I-40.

“Incredible geological structure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

A beautiful sandstone arch set away from a hillside as the cave behind the opening collapsed. The trail leads right up to the foot of the arch, allowing great photo opportunities.
