Lexington Arch Road: The unimproved dirt road to Lexington Arch is rough and rutted. High-clearance, 4-wheel drive vehicles are recommended. Due to damage sustained by wildfire, the Lexington Arch road is severely washed out. Vehicles will have to park approximately 0.5 - 1 mile before the official parking area/trailhead begins as a result. Drive as far as you feel comfortable and walk the rest of the way. There is not a designated parking area. Do not block the road or damage vegetation when parking. Look for orange trail markers on trees to guide you towards the trailhead through the washout.
