This is a nice trail to take with the family. Make sure you take water and a snack we have kids so I always bring them something. It is very pretty. Very easy trail for the family. Would differently do again.

Natural Arch is a beautiful hidden gem back in the hills of McCreary County. The trails are on a paved system , 2 wonderful overlooks, outdoor shelters , playgrounds , great place for the family.

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.
