This arch is located in an area called “Goblin Valley”, not to be
confused with the Goblin Valley in Utah. This one is in western
Colorado northwest of the town of Debeque. Debeque is along
I/S 70 about 35 miles northeast of Grand Junction. From the
southwest area of the town, take the Winter Flats road west for
about 2 miles before skirting the south flank of S. Shale Ridge.
Goblin Valley lies along the road on the extreme west boundary
of the roadless area just west of Corcoran Peak. This road
continues all the way around back to Debeque. There are
three groups of goblins, all within 10 yards of the road. A little
exploring should locate the arch.
