This is a moderate loop trail to Skull Arch in Arches National Park. This area requires an additional fee and permit that can be acquired at the visitor's center. It involves watching a short video. There are only a limited number of permits each day; arrive early or get yours in advance.
Head into the canyon and follow small brown and white signs with arrows. Stay in washes or on slickrock to prevent damage to the fragile living soil crust!

This trail goes by Lomatium Canyon.

Getting Started

Follow signs to Fiery Furnace. Park and display your permit on your backpack.

Taking Children

Not recommended for children. There are several places with steep, exposed crevasses.
