From Rt. 127 take Pomona Rd. west 1 mile to 3-way stop. Turn right and continue to the Y in the road and veer right onto Natural Bridge Rd. Follow 1.5 miles to parking lot at the end of the road.

Beautiful land bridge just a short hike from the parking lot at the trailhead. The road is gravel and dead ends into the parking lot, so just keep going! Worth visiting if you are in the area.

The trail is very short and a bit off the beaten path but the bridge itself is really cool. Great views and nice for a little hike if you're in the area.

The trail is terribly easy...but the feature is really cool. If you are close (Little Grand Canyon) its worth the drive...and yes the dirt road is trickier than the hike...but well worth the trip.

It took awhile to find it from where we were staying in Marion. We almost gave up on because of the car ride. Once it was found its beautiful. Short trail, A lot of poison ivy but worth the trip if your in the area.

This trail is short, but had a lot of poison ivy. It is pretty, but not maintained very well.

Absolutely beautiful hike. Short and sweet. Entrance into the park is a gravel road, so slow and easy. Lots of poison ivy in bloom along the trail at this time of year. The bridge is so worth the short walk.

Loved this hike. very simple hike but beautiful view. There were a few tress down I had to climb over on the path. Dislike the drive down the grave road it felt like forever and was extremely terrible shape. On another note I was the only one on the path the etire time

Worth a trip to see the natural bridge, but I would only go there again if I was also visiting the Little Grand Canyon Trail. The trail was too short to be a good hiking trail.

Very short, steep hike to a cool 90ft natural bridge. Even though the trail is short, there are benches to sit on if you don't want to sit on rocks. A must see if you are in the area.

Pomona is spectacular natural bridge, very scenic. I caught after a rain and the water was flowing enough to have several nice small waterfalls. Short trail but very nice. Real close the the Little Grand Caynon. Make sure you hike it while you are there.
