We found these instructions to Birthday Arch in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area on photographer Peter F. Flynn's blog:

Birthday Arch may be found by walking from the ruins of a ranch house apparently once belonging to a clan named Wolfe east by northeast up a sandstone slope.  After approximately three miles turn east and traverse around an impressive natural ramp that curves clockwise gaining a hundred feet or so.  The end of the ramp brings you to a narrow ridge from which to view Birthday Arch. 

GPS coordinates of Birthday Arch: N37°04'21.0" W111°41.3'46.0" (via utaharches.com)
