Hike to one of the largest arches in Natural Bridge State Resort Park.

Starting from the Whittleton Campground, you will follow along a stream until reaching the Whittleton Arch Trail at 0.75 miles. Turn right to reach the arch. It is also worth noting that this is the only pet friendly trail in the park.

You can add on the nearby Henson's Arch (0.5 miles) to your day. A trail map is available here.
