The route to Cassidy Arch is strenuous and should be avoided during the hottest hours of the day. It ascends nearly 1,000 feet to an overlook of Cassidy Arch, sculpted out of the Kayenta sandstone formation. The track provides excellent views of Grand Wash and Capitol Reef.
Begin this hike from the end of Grand Wash Road. The road extends approximately one mile east of Scenic Drive. From the trailhead Cassidy Arch Trail leads westward, ascending the northern wall of Grand Wash.
It climbs steeply out of Grand Wash through high cliffs and slickrock above the wash. The Frying Pan Trail intersects Cassidy Arch Trail approximately one mile from the trailhead. Turn left at this intersection to reach Cassidy Arch.
Directions: From Capitol Reef Visitor Center, Drive southward along the Scenic Drive 3.5 miles to Grand Wash Road. Turn left on to Grand Wash Road and drive to the trailhead at road's end.
