This is one of the premier areas for early spring wildflower viewing in the eastern Columbia River Gorge. There is a seasonal waterfall here as well. The trailhead and parking is located on the north side of the county road, leading to a multi-use biker/hiker/equestrian trail.

Visitors can carefully cross the county road to reach the south side Catherine Creek Trail #4400, an accessible one mile paved loop trail with incredible views of the Columbia River. Benches and interpretive signage are scattered along the path.

The site was once a ranch before being acquired by the Forest Service to protect native plants, the unique arch formation, and other sensitive resources after the creation of the National Scenic Area.

(Discover Pass is required for parking.)
