Backpack through the Daniel Boone National Forest to a number of unique rock formations.
Start out on Koomer Ridge Trail to see Hidden Arch. You will then head into the Right Fork Chimney Top Creek watershed, where you'll spend the night.
The next day, hike along Buck Ridge to Sheltowee Trace Trail. Gray's Arch is located off of this trail. After stopping at the arch, rejoin Sheltowee Trace. Camp the second night at lower Right Fork Chimney Top Creek.
The last day requires a steep climb to Koomer Ridge. The ridgeline will lead you back to the trailhead.
