Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike has perhaps the best vista on the entire Sheltowee Trace. Here, the trail leaves pleasant Clear Creek Valley and climbs to a north—south running ridge. Your first view will be looking down on Clear Creek Lake.

From there, wind southward among hardwoods to make Furnace Arch. You can not only view the arch, and walk beneath it, but also walk up to the top and gaze into the Ohio Valley flatlands beyond. Outstanding Features: Classic arch, views from atop arch, and ridge walking"
