Great to see this post. I have been looking at that loop - looks like you did one deviation - but over it is a few more miles than I expected. Good to know. Hope you had fun.
Thanks - even better with your pics.
and the arch is at the end of the little out-and-back towards indian rock?
Erik, that's correct. It's a hidden gem of Yosemite!
nice! definitely have to check it out asap.
A ranger I talked to said they like to keep it relatively secret since they're afraid too many visitors will stand on the delicate arch and it will collapse. For now there are no railings or signs and I hope it stays that way.
interesting. are there any trails going to it or should i mark a waypoint and just make my way up the hill?
Yes, there is a use path and sign at the junction, which is at the high point of the trail over the Indian Rock ridge. (No keep off signs at the arch itself)
