Hike to a 50-foot natural arch in the Red River Gorge.

The trail approaches the arch through a ravine, passing by cliffs, dense forest, and a stream (Kings Branch) en route.

Greys Arch

My best friend and I did hike this several years ago super great and fun run up to the arch but sadly there was no access to climb up the arch.

A Magnificent Arch!

For an extended hike take Pinch 'Em Tight (#223) Trailhead to Rough Trail (#221) to Gray's Arch. Park at the Gray's Arch Parking Lot and head back on the gravel drive from the direction you came. Pinch 'Em Tight Trailhead is a short distance on your left. Take a left on Rough Trail and explore Hansen's Point before descending into the valley for some vista overlooks. Lots of backcountry sites available on the way to Hansen's Point!
