The arch is impressive! The first 1/2 mile is uphill but doable. The first 1/2 also has some nice rock formations. Most of the trail is flat and simply walking in the woods.

it's a fun hike ... there is a very steep climb at the start of the trail then it levels out ... the arch itself is cool to see and gives you something to look forward to as you hike .. it dose have much traffic so expect to enjoy some seclusion and wildlife.

Hiked this trail today (10-16-2016) from Parkers Mountain Trailhead #634...first mile was up the mountain a little strenuous but not to bad, trail was covered with leaves but easy to follow some good fall colors made it a good hike to the arch which is pretty impressive!!
