Short trail, but one that is very interesting. It's reported to be the only natural bridge in Kentucky with a paved roar over it. There is a crystal clear stream of water that runs through it along with a walking path.

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.

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.

Very family friendly, short walk, lots to see.

The short loop trail is great for a quick relaxed hike. You can walk or drive down from the Welcome Center to the Trail Head. If you walk you can stop at the creek to your right.

The Natural Bridge itself is much larger than I thought it would be, it's more like a giant natural tunnel. You can walk through it and on top. There is a hole in the ceiling you can see from below or above.

This is somewhere you can keep going back to, especially because it is a Resort style Park, everything is all right there.

Excellent, easy trail. Great for kids and beginners. The trailhead is behind the Welcome Center. The trail winds along beside a creek and takes you through an amazing rock formation. Then, the trail goes up and over the Natural Bridge and loops back around to the Welcome Center. Great views with little time or effort required.

Did this as part of the three bridges trail. Very interesting to see how rock formations are created over millions of years.

Easy, great if you have kids and are waiting for the next cave tour to open. I personally went on it after I went on Horn Hollow trail, just because Horn Hollow was lacking in the end without the ability to go into the caves.
