The hike to Liberty Bell Arch is a stunning desert trip with amazing views, geologic history, and desert life.

Hit the trail early in the day to beat the heat. Hike all the way to the end of the trail (to the left after you reach the Liberty Bell) for a rewarding view of the Colorado River. In March, the cacti and other desert plants burst into bloom along the trail. 

The trail is 5.3 miles out and back, perfect for intermediate hikers.
