Summary: The 3 rated Picture Frame Arch trail offers most of the same scenery that the extreme 8+ Behind the Rocks trail does with much less potential of vehicle damage.
Location: The Picture Frame Arch trail leaves Highway 191 about 13 miles south of Moab just after climbing a long hill on the highway. The exit is on the right going to the west.
Scenery: The scenery includes the unique weathered sandstone fins and domes just behind the rock cliff that faces Moab. There are several opportunities to peer down into Kane Creek Canyon which bounds the area on the southwest.
The Trail: The Picture Frame Arch trail allows participants to view the High Dive, Upchuck, and White Knuckle Hill obstacles of the more difficult 4+ version with much less risk of damaging their vehicles. There are a few minor drainage crossings with exposed rock ledges that will require some attention to climb with stock equipment.
