River crossing

The route start on a very flat path leaving the river always on the left. At first it is as if you were in a park next to a river, although inside a small canyon, since you can find even swings. The curious and prettiest comes later, since after the section closest to the town the river begins to be left below and ascends above the canyon to have magnificent views of the surroundings.

Right there is the famous Tosa bridge, a walkway that crosses a narrow part of the canyon flying over part of the river. One last!.

Final section of the canyon

The final stretch of the Arches Canyon was partly done circular to be able to see the canyon from a different perspective and, above all, not to have to go back the same way. Still, if you see the right track / map It was only a circular section in the final part of the route. In any case, this small ideal route to go with family or children is worth it, since the section of the catwalks is really original.
