The trail leading to Broken Bow Arch is well-marked. It involves both cairned slick rock and sand. It then drops down to the streambed. Once in the streambed, the hiker enjoys lush foliage, wildlife, and majestic canyon walls. The hike downstream is delightfully flat and sandy, and may be done in bare feet. Awaiting is the emerald beauty of Lake Powell.
