Natural Arch Trail

  Not sure if this is a arch.  Someone will have to hike/rock climb to varify.  This feature can be seen from the parking lot at the end of the road in the quality fishing area below Navajo Dam NM.  Drive beyond Cottonwood campground to the end of the road, Simon Canyon is on your left when entering the parking lot.  The arch is on the skyline on the far side of Simon Canyon.
Says Mel Schweigert

In the San Juan and Jemez Mountains you'll find lots of
    hiking trails where beautiful scenery awaits you. Put on your hiking shoes and hit the trail, if you happen to be in Los Alamos County of New Mexico, Natural Arch Trail is a great local trail for doing a bit of leg stretching. New
Mexico is a great outdoors state.
It's a long drive from Los Alamos to Natural Arch Trail but when you spend some time hiking here you will feel like a whole new person. A splendid site to check out next to Natural Arch Trail is Vallecito de los Caballos, and whitewater paddling is not for everybody but if it's for you then, we recommend Rio Grande. Yeah, come up here to the San Juan and Jemez Mountains for a good time. Bandelier National Monument is a
magnificent place near Natural Arch Trail; a fine location to camp here at Natural Arch Trail is Las Conchas Campground. The nice people of Los Alamos like to hang out nearby, and there's whitewater on Rio Chama for all you thrill seekers. Camping at Juniper Campground is always a glorious experience.
