Overview

Arrow Canyon Road runs 2.0 miles from Highway 168 to the edge of the Arrow Canyon Wilderness Area in Lower Arrow Canyon and provides hiking access to the spectacularly deep-and-narrow Arrow Canyon. This road is graded and maintained past a residence to a municipal water facility, but after that, the road is an unmaintained two-track. Hikers in sedans can drive out 0.5 miles and park past the water facility, and under good conditions, the entire road is suitable for 2WD high-clearance vehicles, but the road washed out in Fall 2014 and now requires 4WD.

Presented here are photos shot while exiting the area (driving back down the road). For a full description of the road, see the Arrow Canyon Road webpage.
