Lathe Arch

Lathe Arch reveals the granite sky of the Alabama Hills




Drive West out of the town of Lone Pine. Take a right on Movie Flat Road. Drive 1 1/2 miles down a dusty dirt road. Park in the empty parking lot. Walk about 100 yards north. Mobius Arch and Lathe Arch are right next to each other.


Both arches will frame views of the Sierra crest, including Mt Whitney, and you can guess what the popular viewpoint is.


Lathe Arch is relatively low, and missed by some visitors, but perhaps shares more magic than Mobius Arch.
