The photos of Cobra Arch looked beautiful, worth the trek out to find it. From some of the descriptions, we wondered if we'd ever find it; but I had it on my GPS in OsmAnd, and at the Paria ranger station they gave us printed directions that turned out to be quite good. The only problem was that we diverged from the GPS trail near the end, and ended up wandering across the slickrock above where the GPS said the arch was, so we spread out and cast about to find it.
It was just as spectacular as the photos, well worth the hike; and the hike was beautiful and not that difficult.
