Silvermine Arch (#225) Professional Reviews and Guides
"If you happen to be camping at the Koomer Ridge Campground, there’s really no reason not to hike the trails that begin in the campground itself. They make a great early-morning or -evening hike for families, especially given their relatively short lengths. The longer of the two descends the cliffs to Silvermine Arch. This underappreciated trail offers not only solitude and quiet but also an opportunity to explore around a wondrous grotto surrounding the arch, topped with thickets of rhododendrons and views into a nearby ravine and the imposing cliffs above it."
