Broken Bell Arch
From Rt. 191 north of Moab, take Rt. 313 to the Island-in-the-Sky District of Canyonlands National Park. Along the Park road, there is a place where the "Island" narrows known as "The Neck". Here, on the east side of the road, one can look down and see the Shafer Trail switchbacks. Immediately north of the viewpoint, is a parking area and trailhead for the Neck Spring Trail. A Trailguide is available at the trailhead (the trailhead is 0.4 miles south of the Island-in-the-Sky Visitor's Center). Although the 5 mile loop trail is on the west side of the road, the trail crosses the road from the parking lot on the east side. The arch is in the upper region of Taylor Canyon and is below the level of the trail about 2 miles from the trailhead.
