    Natural Arch is located in the Daniel Boone National Forest near the border of Tennessee and Kentucky. Once you get inside of the park there are many picnic tables and other areas to eat and sit and paths to walk on. The main attraction of the park however is the 100 foot wide arch that spans over the trees. There are two different ways that you can view the arch one from the overlook that is about .1 miles from the parking lot the other option is hiking down to the base of the arch. The other option is to hike to the base of the arch in the sand. The trail to the arch is 1 mile long. When you get to the arch you can walk around the base of it and explore the arch but you can not climb on it.
