Great trail and views

We took our kids and dog on this trail before we left for the day. There was alot to see and the kids had a great time. Would definitely recommend.

Loved it. Beautiful views.

One of the best hikes we've done! Stopped halfway to go explore in Horn Hollow Cave with our flashlights. Brings waterproof shoes if you're gonna explore the caves! But the trail itself is great, too. Will definitely be coming back. Easy for all ages.

Easy, short walk from welcome center down a paved path to a well defined trail. 40 minute round trip. As others have reported this natural bridge is like a tunnel. It does support a small paved road. Its was nice to visit and kill an hour of time waiting for X-Cave tour to start.

Nice loop trail that starts right next to the Carter Caves visitors center. There is a part where it gets really steep right after you pass the sign to return to the visitors center, but it's worth it. I did this by myself with my chocolate lab and we had a good time!

I took my dog on this trail this morning and it was very pretty. Fern bridge was beautiful. Carter Caves has a lot of parking and the employees at the welcome center were very friendly.

What a site to see three natural bridge's.

Very beautiful! My husband and I have done the 3 Bridges and 4Cs several times. On this hike my husband kept saying that this shorter hike was his favorite and the most beautiful on the park. Lots of beautiful views of cave openings, rock formations and rocky creeks. It has a steep climb back uphill from the direction we started but it's not too difficult. I am overweight and trying to get back in shape - I had to stop and catch my breath a few times on climb back up, but a family with 2 kids under 6 hiked in front of us and they did great! Highly recommended if you don't have time for a long hike or just want to do a short one with the kids.

Nice trail. Second half is the most scenic part. Hiking through creeks and seeing waterfalls.

Was a decent walk, paths not posted but at least it's out and away from the house.

Absolutely gorgeous. Raven bridge is a bit disappointing, but the other two will not disappoint. Took our chocolate lab for the hike and he had a great time

Great hike!

This trail is a great little trail to acclimate ones self with nature, hiking & the great outdoors.

This trail captures the full essence of CC's.

This trail is not what I'd refer to as Easy. Some truly daunting areas and the Fern bridge is in disrepair. The difficulty makes it the almost perfect trail. Beginning is a bit boring but once you get through it the rest is worth the wait.
