Take the scenic gravel drive and turn left at Grand Wash. The
Road goes as far as Cassidy Arch; but the foot trail continues all the
way to Rt.24. There is a slot canyon accessible by rappeling down
from Cassidy Arch. Near the bottom of the canyon is an old bridge,
steps carved in sandstone, and an old cable attached to the sandstone.
There is a myth (some people believe it is true) that this was Butch
Cassidy’s hideout. The rappels take one through this arch as well
as Lonely Tree, qv. The slot canyon is virtually inaccessible from
below. Needless to say, visiting these two arches is reserved for
those experienced in climbing techniques. Estimated from the topo
map, the UTM is 12 0480347E 4234901N.
