"Princess Arch" Slade Things to Do Tip by Stephen-KarenConn
Slade Things to Do: 7 reviews and 7 photos
An easy half mile hike from the Chimney Top parking lot leads to this very lovely arch. With its 32-foot length and 8-foot height, it is not one of the most spectacular arches, but its gently curved surfaces give the viewer an attractive example of what is known in geologic terms as a finished arch. The trail ends at the top of the arch. If you want to see it from underneath, go back up the trail about 70 feet and you will find a small unmarked path through the underbrush that leads down a steep grade to the base of the arch.
The cliffs just beyond the arch are very high and there are no guardrails. A marker at the trailhead memorializes one young man who lost his life by falling there.
Directions: The trailhead to Princess Arch is at the Chimney Top overlook parking area, reached by a 5 mile gravel road (Chimney Top Road) off the loop on Ky. Hwy. 715.
