Rock Arch is a 1.1km, grade 3 Return hike located in Ben Boyd National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.

Summary

The arched rock is just off the headland north-east of Barmouth Beach and is an interesting rock formation. The walk winds along the hillside above Barmouth Beach which is a worthy side trip and continues to the unfenced clearing that looks down to the arched rock. This walk will inspire the geologist in us all as we try to figure out how the rock arch was made.
