West Pollock Canyon Arch
The arch is located in the West Fork of Pollock Canyon, and is accessible from the Rattlesnake Canyon Upper Trailhead. At the junction where the trail forks, take the right fork which is the loop trail. At the next junction, go right toward the lower Rattlesnake Canyon trailhead; but leave the trail to stay on the bench at the base of the Entrada Sandstone. Follow the bench for about 1 1/3 miles, soon passing Picture Window (aka South American Arch) and eventually arriving at West Pollock Canyon Arch at NAD 83 Zone 12 0688101E 4334096N. The arch has a span of 44ft.
