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.  Due to the low water flowage at Slave Falls, some hikers may wish to only do the Twin Arches hike which would shorten the total distance to 5.5 miles.


For This Hike:

Hiking boots and hiking sticks are recommended.
Driving directions will be provided the morning of the hike.
We will be car pooling. Please bring $6 to help defray costs for the drivers.
Bring water and a trail lunch.
