Pritchett Arch
Although this arch is more than just a little out-of-the-way, it is certainly worth the trip if you have a four-wheel-drive vehicle. It would come in second comparing it with Corona Arch. The opening has a span of 121 ft.
Drive south from Moab on US 191. Not far beyond where the road climbs out of Spanish Valley, a gravel road turns to the right (another road turns off to the left here). This is an old oil exploration road which is two-wheel-drive for part of the way. Continue on this road until it descends into a pretty valley. Soon there is a sign indicating the turnoff to the trail head. The foot trail ascends a cliff and continues along a ledge, passing another arch (Cumming's). The trail goes around an outcropping before arriving at Pritchett Arch. See Pritchett Arch from the Air.
