This is the easiest "navigation arrow" to find and get to of the 4 we've listed here on the site. It is also a very scenic area to visit. This arrow is located very close to the old Spanish Trail and the 1776 encampment is just on the East side of the freeway.

This is a really easy "navigation arrow" to find and if it's not in a rainy period then the road in should be good for 2 wheel drive. If it's after a rainy period (like when we went) then you'll want a 4x4 to get through the mud (see the video). There is a very short hike up a very slight grade to get to the arrow. This is the northern most arrow in Washington County, Utah. The navigation arrows continue on north to Salt Lake City spaced about every 10 miles. This one was on a small flat top hill and was still in pretty good shape considering its age.
