Catherine Creek Arch

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Another view of the arch (Steve Hart)


There are a surprising number of natural rock arches in our area, including the Rock of Ages Arch, the Natural Arch near Gates and the Ed's Trail Arch near Silver Star. The largest arch in our region may be this arch near Catherine Creek.

This is a true arch with freestanding rock, but it's unfortunately close to the cliff, so it's not as obvious as it might be. Above and below, a pole and rail fence keeps visitors at their distance as this is a sacred site for Native Americans.
