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

Dog Friendly. Excellent Trail.

This trail is a nice easy trail that takes you along a natural bridge, and leads you around a bluffline full of huge rocks, cracks and crevices to explore. The trail is a loop, and will lead you back to the top with minimal incline.
The top area has vaulted bathrooms. There are several picnic tables and places to cook out if you want to spend some extended time in the area.
A great hidden treasure in the Ozarks!

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.
