The trail down to the Twin Arches is about .7 miles one way, and rated easy until you get to the steep wooden stairs that descends about 25 feet to below the bluff. The trail continues to descend and wind through very beautiful hardwoods just below the bluff line. When you first see the North Arch, you will gasp in unbelief, and as you approach the arch, the huge sandstone formation is truly amazing. The South Arch is just as impressive, and is only a few hundred yards from the North Arch. The hardest part of the hike is climbing the steps on the return trip. First, you climb 60 or more steps to the top of the arch. The trail then goes along the top of the arch to another more challenging set of steps and you eventually merge with the trail going back to the trailhead.
