Mobius Arch is one of many natural arches in the Alabama Hills. It is the most popular though and gets many visitors on a daily basis. The drive up Whitney Portal Road is a beautiful one. Drive slow and enjoy the views.
After turning down movie road you drive down a couple miles and reach the Mobius Arch Trailhead.
The area is home to 100’s of natural arches so keep your eyes open and you might spot a few.
Mobius Arch is about halfway up the trail. Its a loop hike so start in either direction and you will run into it. Actually going counter clockwise will probably get you there a bit sooner.
Here we have Mt. Whitney ( 14,508 ft), the highest point in the lower 48, framed by the Mobius arch.
