Big South Fork, Jamestown, TN – Twin Arches Loop Trail.
April 24, 2021 @ 7:30 am – 3:00 pm
Short hike: 4. 6 mi moderately strenuous past the Arches to Jake’s Place and back. Long hike: This is a 6 mile moderately strenuous loop hike due to the flights of stairs and the continual climb from Charit Creek. The Twin Arches are the largest arches in Big South Fork and quite possibly in the Eastern United States. The South Arch is the highest at 100 feet. After visiting the arches, we pass through several huge rock houses along the base of the cliffs as we wind our way to Jake’s Place, the remains of a mid-1800’s house and farm. Then we follow the creek to Charit Creek Lodge. Bring your lunch to eat on the Charit Creek Lodge porch. Then we ascend 500 ft. in almost a mile as we climb from Charit Creek, past the arches, and to the trailhead. Depart 7:30 am CDST as cost is $6. Don’t forget tick/bug spray and sunscreen. Pack water, snacks and lunch.
