The long drive on Kane County Road #400 is along a monocline named “The Cockscomb”, similar to the Waterpocket Fold of Capitol Reef National Park, but on a smaller (but perhaps more colorful) scale. Then the large, colorful sandstone double arch apears, and the viewer gets the sense of awe that strikes when you see something you have never seen before. A small parking lot is near the arch and short trail leads to the area below the arch. Grosvenor Arch was named for former National Geographic Society President Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor.
