The Buffalo Arch Trail #634A

The Buffalo Arch Trail #634A, located on Stearns District of the Daniel Boone National Forest, is accessed from the Parkers Mountain Trail. The trail follows a ridge for 1/4-mile before reaching the arch. Native Americans gave this arch its name because they used its height as an advantage when hunting buffalo. The arch is located at the end of a ridge, measuring 18 feet 6 inches high and 81 feet 8 inches wide. The ridgeline drops along the back of Buffalo Arch into a valley created by a nearby stream. ** This trail does not meet accessibility standards for persons with disabilities.

From US 27 in Whitley City, take KY 92 and go 6.3 miles to KY 1363, just past Yamacraw Bridge. Turn left and go 11.4 miles to the end of the blacktop, and then turn right onto Forest Service Road 564. Go 1.2 miles. Stay right on 564 for 1.5 miles. Continue straight on Forest Service Road 562 for 5.8 miles until you reach Forest Service Road 6305 on your left.
