NABSQNO 15S-479699-3952816. Hurricane Creek Natural Bridge is an adult alcove natural arch eroded through Middle Bloyd sandstone. It is located about three miles northeast of the small community of Fort Douglas in northeast Johnson County, Arkansas. This location is within the Hurricane Creek Wilderness Area in the Ozark National Forest, managed by the USFS. Access is via the Ozark Highlands Trail.
To reach the arch, Hurricane Creek must be crossed. In dry periods this is an ankle deep wade. At other times, Hurricane Creek can become a torrent that is much too dangerous to attempt to cross. Thus, the arch is best visited in dry times. It has a span of 58 feet.
