This trail leads down to one of the largest natural bridges in this part of the country. It is in a beautiful little valley enclosed by a rugged bluff line. The natural bridge is carved from solid rock by a small creek and spans over 130 feet. The trail goes across the natural bridge and then loops

Hiked this short trail with my family on a beautiful late fall day. This is a great little gem that is a fairly easy walk and makes a great afternoon outing. Beautiful and unique area hidden away in a picturesque valley.

The bridge is amazing, but I really enjoyed the rest of the loop and two (2) overhanging caves. Make the loop, it is an easy and enjoyable hike.

For such a short hike we spent a few hours here. We had the place to ourselves and my kids - 12 and 8 - loved playing among all the rock formations. Well worth the time!

Another great hike with young kids. Not too long, and not too strenuous. The natural bridge, bluffs, and caves are really amazing.

Easy hike down to a very scenic natural bridge. There wasn't much water flowing in the nearby creek, but it was still a great way to spend a rainy/foggy afternoon.

Returned with some friends. The natural bridge is stunning. But you miss a wet weather waterfall and bluff caves if you don't complete the loop. For the full experience do it all.

Scenic loop hike with some great geologic structures: caves and a natural rock bridge. An easy trek, just a little over one mile.

The hike is short and rather unremarkable, however it's still worth the trip for the bridge alone. It's stunning! The trail also has a beautiful rock shelter. I hiked this park in the fall and imagine it would be most spectacular in the spring when the trail's stream and waterfall is running.
