Horizon Arch
Horizon Arch    This is a difficult arch to find and get to. Even having been to it, I couldn't find it the next time I tried. I suggest having the topo map and even a GPS unit would help. Driving the Allvey Wash Rd. 4 miles from Main St. in Escalante will get you to Coal Bed Canyon where parking a 2wd car will be difficult. Hike or 4wd west in Coal Bed 1 mile to the first canyon on the right- Mitchell Canyon. Hike Mitchell to the fourth drainage on the right at 37deg.43'40" N 111deg.39'27"W on the Canaan Creek,UT topo map. Hike 0.4 miles up the drainage to where it turns right, but go straight ahead to the cliff there. Climb 200 ft. on the steep side to the plateau on top and continue walking up 0.4 miles to the arch at 6880 ft., 37deg.44'23" , 111deg.l39'46".

(There is a similarly-named arch in the San Rafael Swell)
