There are probably hundreds of arches in Valley of Fire State Park. Most of them are relatively small in comparison to those found in Arches National Park. This one is just large enough to crawl under but is still photogenic. I don’t know if it’s a named arch. If it is, I don’t know the name. The area where it’s found is very pretty with brilliant orange, white, and yellow sandstone everywhere.
From the Valley of Fire Visitor Center drive 13 miles (21km) to the Fire Wave parking area (parking lot #3). On the right side of the lot, there’s a narrow drainage leading southwest. Work your way down the drainage until it opens up after a couple of minutes. There are two paths. One veering to the left and the other to the right. If you go to the right, try to stay close to the white rock features to get to a couple of small (just large enough to walk under) but very nice arches. The one pictured will come into view in a minute or two on the left side of the path.
