Pine Mtn/Heath Hollow - ARCH
I just got back from hiking Heath Wash/Hollow located in the foothills of Pine Mtn's south face near the town of Leeds, Utah. Not only is this some amazing slickrock country to explore, but there is a beautiful, 23 ft. redrock arch located in the area.
The arch can be viewed from either canyon wall with some easy slickrock scrambling. Or, for the more adventurous, the arch can be viewed from the bottom of the hollow. Hiking the bottom is a bit uncomfortable; as it is a drainage for rain and snow melt for Pine Mtn. Also, there are boulders strewn from one end of the wash all the way until it meets up with the Red Cliff Desert Preserve trail "Heath Wash Trail" in the lower sandy flats. This would be a great backpack that could end in the lower preserve. You would have to stay in the Dixie natl forest and then hike the second day to the preserve and out exiting to the south.
I have the directions and the gps coords for the arch. It can be viewed as an easy short hike, or more indepth redrock scramble of the area.
Here is a link to the rest of the pictures of the wash and the arch.
