hike/car camp to colonnade arch

We will be hiking to Colonnade Arch (the locals call it 5-hole Arch) in Emery County. This site is about 3 miles above Horseshoe Canyon (The Great Gallery). The hike is 1 mile. However there are other neat spots around the arch too. I proposed to meet at Ray's Tavern in Green River at 10 AM. We will then be driving about 1 to 1 1/2 to the trailhead. A 4WD, high clearance vehicle is needed to access the trailhead. My subaru can make it because it is 4WD; however, I would prefer a little more clearance. We would get to the trailhead by 2PM and Car camp there and start our hike and finish around 6 PM. The hike is a mile from the trailhead and is over slickrock. There is a steep slant to the arches where hiking poles will help. The next day, people can hike Horseshoe Canyon (7 miles), do another hike around the arch or head back home.
