Description

The Princess Arch Trail originates from the trailhead for Chimney Top Trail #235. It would make sense to combine the two for a longer hike.

The notable arch is found midway along the trail while you can continue to a nice exposed overlook at the end of the short ridge.

Flora & Fauna

Stinging and biting insects will be about in summer as well as the rare copperhead or even rarer rattlesnake.
