Jeep Arch - Hiking
Don’t be fooled by the name—the only way to get to Jeep Arch is with careful routefinding and your own two feet.
The out-and-back and the loop options are both about 4 miles round-trip.
Destination Distance From Downtown
You can do Jeep Arch as an out-and-back or a lollipop-style loop; though the elevation gain isn't particularly strenuous, both require some routefinding and a little scrambling.
Time To Complete
Spring, Fall, and Winter
Culvert Canyon can be hiked in any season, though soaring summer temps mean an early (or late) start is essential. In spring, consider recent rainfall before attempting to pass through the culvert.
On Leash Only
Culvert Canyon is a desert bighorn lambing area, so it's particularly important to keep dogs on leash here to avoid disturbing these sensitive critters.
