Observations and Notes

The Stockton Arrow is located in the small town of Stockton, Utah, approximately 25 miles south of I-80.  Stockton is located in an agricultural valley, with a high mountain range to the east and rolling hills to the west.  The arrow itself is located on a small ridge overlooking the town. 

We had to drive out past the local cemetery and then up a narrow dirt road to reach the arrow.  We used four wheel drive to get up to the arrow.  However you can park at the bottom of the ridge and walk up the dirt road to the arrow, which would take approximately 10-15 minutes.


The arrow is located in the middle of tall sage brush, and is very difficult to locate without precise gps coordinates to guide you to it.  All five portions of the arrow are still there, but it is in extremely poor condition.  Settling of the arrow has caused it to crack and break away.  The arrow is 58 feet in length.


The pilot would approach the tail of the arrow on a compass heading of 348° (NW), and then exit the arrow on a compass heading of 18° (NE).
(All measurements and compass headings are approximate).
