New Year Arch (possibly Pounder Arch)

Located just yards off the Sheltowee Trace on the left approximately 2.39 miles from the 192 Trailhead.  It is easily located on your hike to Van Hook Gorge and Falls.


This arch is easily seen from the Sheltowee Trace on the edge of a rock line on your left before you drop over into Van Hook Gorge.

I located this arch on New Year’s Day 2020 on a hike to Van Hook Falls.
