WINCHESTER -- In recognition of National Get Outdoors Day, the Daniel Boone National Forest will waive recreation fees at Natural Arch Scenic Area in McCreary County on Saturday, June 8.
The scenic area provides multiple amenities for outdoor use, including eight picnic sites and two group-use shelters that accommodate up to 36 people. Nearby play areas and more than six miles of hiking trails provide opportunity for other recreational activities.
Natural Arch, a spectacular rock formation that spans nearly 100 feet, is the main attraction. An overlook provides visitors with a panoramic view of the arch and surrounding forest.
The U.S. Forest Service and American Recreation Coalition launched National Get Outdoors Day in 2008 to encourage healthy outdoor activities on public lands and waterways.
