This route leads through the little-used Klondike Bluffs area of the park. It provides access to Tower Arch and the Marching Men.

This short and moderately difficult trail leads from the end of Salt Valley Road to Tower Arch. The track is 3.5 miles round trip. It leads through a little-visited area of the park known as Klondike Bluffs. In the early days of the park this was the most visited area as the main entrance lead visitors through Klondike Bluffs.

The trail begins by leading westward and climbing a short, steep rock wall. It then crosses a valley where the Marching Men formation lies. The track soon enters an area filled with sandstone fins and sand dunes, where you'll find Tower Arch. The trail continues westward beyond the arch to meet the end of a four-wheel drive road.

Directions: From Main Park Entrance, Drive northward 16.7 miles along the main park road to Salt Valley Road. Turn left and follow Salt Valley Road 7.7 miles through the valley to a fork in the road. Bear left at the fork and drive 1.3 miles to the Klondike Bluffs trailhead.
