Cassidy Hideout Arch
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.
