Metate Arch
Although this is a small arch, it has an interesting shape. The opening has a span of 16 ft. and a height of 22 ft. It is just off the Hole-in-the-Rock road in southern Utah. On US 89 seven miles south of Panguitch, turn east on Utah 12 to the town of Escalante. Continue on through Escalante about 5 miles and turn right onto the gravel Hole-in-the-Rock road. A BLM area called The Devil's Garden (not to be confused with the one in Arches N.P.) is about 12 miles down this two-wheel-drive road (rough and washboardy). The arch is in this area and would be visible from the road were it not for the fact that the arch is down over an escarpment. This is quite a small area with interesting formations and small arches. Wander around and the arch will soon appear. The Devil's Garden sign at the entrance is quite inconspicuous.
