Although it is one of the state's smallest natural arches, Raven Rock Arch boasts the most scenic location of them all. Found high atop a cliff of Mississippian sandstone capping a 500 foot (150m) high bluff, the arch opens out onto a spectacular view of the Ohio River valley.
This natural feature is named for Raven Rock, a projection of the same cliff said to represent the beak of a large bird formed by the body of the bluff. Raven Rock Arch is a thin remnant of stone 14 inches (35cm) wide at its narrowest point and 15 feet (4.6m) long.
In 1996, 95 acres including all three arches and Raven Rock were dedicated as a state nature preserve and can be visited by first obtaining a permit from the Division of Natural Areas and Preserves. You can obtain a free permit at http://ohiodnr.com/dnap/permits/tabid/1981/Default.aspx
