Located in Big South Fork NRRA, this hike has a lot to offer, starting with the twin natural arches that we meet fairly early in the hike.  We’ll take time here for picture taking.  The trail also takes us to a very rustic, but operational hostel; remains of a homestead and family cemetery dating to 1863; and finally to several very large rock overhangs.  The trail is generally well maintained with just a small amount of rock climbing near the rock walls.  There are a couple of steep stairs to navigate as well.

Hiking boots and hiking sticks are recommended. Driving directions will be provided the morning of the hike.
Bring water and a trail lunch. Carpooling is recommended, passengers are asked to contribute $6 to the driver to help cover gas, etc.,
