Stunning Cobra Arch is nestled in a quiet corner of the Paria Canyon Wilderness,
...just north of one of the premiere slot canyons in the Southwest - Buckskin Gulch. The uniquely shaped structure rises up 30' from the ground and spans 35'. Its namesake is unmistakable, from the hood at the crest of the rock formation to the serpent-like arranged striations down the length of the arch. Enroute to the destination, the path passes a marvelous display of crossbedded sandstone as well as a smattering of precariously stacked rocks. From the arch, the views to the south, east and west encompass the splendor of the Paria Canyon-Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness including North and South Coyote Buttes special permit areas, Steamboat Rock and White Pocket. Our hike is a full day hike and must be combined with a Buckskin gulch full day tour. Best done in the spring and fall as the heat of the summer can make this trip a hot hike. Trip costs $175 per person min of two. A very unique arch!
