The viewing area for this arch is an easy walk from the parking lot. Easy to find. The view in October would be awesome, Rainy April, not so much. There is a trail that leads to the arch, but we did not have time to take it. We'll be back when we have more time to take that trail.

It's a little tricky to locate the sign on 27. Look carefully at National Forest signs for name at the bottom. Kids will love the walk around the arch.

I don't understand why this isn't on more maps. It is right off of a main road, and you only have to walk a few hundred feet to an overlook to get a magnificent view. Highly recommended on a waterfalls/natural bridges hiking excursion!

There is a nice paved walkway to where you can easily see the arch. We didn't walk down the path to view the arch up close. It looks like it might be a decent hike. There was a $3 fee for the day.

An awesome place to visit. you may select rope way or small trek to reach natural arc. You may see bear if you are lucky and these animals are harmless. Please ensure to follow the instructions while trekking.

We were lucky to have wonderful weather, which made our visit to the Park so great. You need a parking pass, and can pay at the entry sign (unattended). You simply fill out a form and put $ in an envelope. Then you put that inside a secure box. Hang tag inside your vehicle and proceed to enjoy the trails,... More

It's a beautiful natural arch. A short hike was needed to reach the place. But they provided an overlook that gives you a full view of the arch. Well maintained National park.

An excellent place to take your family for some bonding time and enjoy nature. Not a very long walk for older people.

There a nice observation deck, and it is just a short from US 27 at Parkers Lake KY. There is a trail if you want to walk down under it.

Very beautiful view and a nice place to go, however if you are out of shape or can not walk or climb stairs, then you will not be able to get there.
