These two arches (referred to as North Arch and South Arch) are
located in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area.
The Area overlaps the Kentucky-Tennessee border, these two
arches being located in Scott County, Tennessee. There are two
Visitors centers, one in the town of Stearns, KY, and one 15 miles
west of Oneida, TN on State Rt. 297. The Park Headquarters
is also on on Rt. 297, but 9 miles west of Oneida. It is said that
there are so many un-reported and un-discovered arches in the Area
that it could be the home of the largest group of arches in the East.
Stop at a Visitor's Center for directions to these and other arches.
North Arch has a span of 92 feet and South Arch, 76 feet.
