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.

I've visited this park two times since I moved here last year. The geology of the arch is quite stunning. There is a overlook that gives you a great view of the full arch. The trail to the arch is not too strenuous, but does have quite a few steps up and down. The trail is well maintained. Both times... More

It's just on KY 927, the coordinate is 36.841090, -84.512246 (latitude, longitude). It's 2 miles from the junction of KY 927 and U.S. 27. The overlook of the arch is just 2 min walk from the parking lot. You can also get close to the arch by taking a walk. The arch is beautiful, spanning over 150 feet.

This place is two miles off 27 and is something you will never forget. One mile hike is jaw-dropping.
