Has anyone ever been here in the early morning? Are the places for a quick view of the Arch? Going to be passing through around 530 AM in the next few weeks. Just want to stop for a peek and quick photo.

Hello. I see a lot of photos on the Internet, where there are a lot of bikers in this park. This is some kind of event they have? When it passes, I would like to see.
