This short trail leads to a small but unusual limestone arch at the entrance to a cave. The cave is too small to be of much interest, but a nearby stairway leads into a sinkhole so that hikers can appreciate the arch and cave-like atmosphere. The Henson’s Arch trailhead is located in the Whittleton Campground just past the bathhouse. The trail begins at a small wooden bridge and then turns left. The trail quickly goes up a steep section and then levels out for a pleasant walk through the forest. The trail begins to ascend again as hikers begin approaching the arch. Once at the arch, hikers will then need to return using the same trail.
