Trail navigation. From the parking lot, head north on Whistling Arch Trail that descends a short distance to the arch. Take some time to enjoy the arch, but be sure to continue to the left of the arch to enjoy a nice overlook of the gorge. Keep children close by, as the backside of this trail has steep cliffs.
