This arch is off the coast of northern California in Salt Point
State Park on Rt .1 about 25 miles north of Bodega Bay.
From the Stump Beach parking area, walk down steps to the
beach and continue up the opposite hill around the point and
along the coast to the arch- about a 2 mile hike. Watch for a
distinctive crescent moon- shaped rock. The arch is down below
the top of the rocks/cliff right after the crescent moon-shaped
rock. “Keystone” is Ted’s name for the arch for its obvious
resemblance to this man-made arch component.
