Natural Bridge is the site of the second largest Civil War battle in Florida, and where the St. Marks River drops into a sinkhole and flows underground for one-quarter of a mile before reemerging. During the final weeks of the Civil War, a Union flotilla landed at Apalachee Bay, planning to capture Fort Ward (San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park) and march north to the state capital. With a timely warning, volunteers from the Tallahassee area-Confederate soldiers, old men, and young boys-met the Union forces at Natural Bridge and successfully repelled three major attacks. The Union troops were forced to retreat to the coast and Tallahassee was the only Confederate capital east of the Mississippi not captured by the Union. A reenactment of the battle is held at the park every March.

Trail ist nicht markiert und schwer zu finden. Als ich "einen" Weg fand, war ich nicht beeindruckt. Bessere Wege finden Sie in Tallahassee.

Ein wirklich schöner Ort ... Sie werden es lieben! Sie können die Natur genießen und viele Alligatoren, Schildkröten, Fische und Seekühe beim Kanufahren sehen. In manchen Gegenden ist der Fluss kristallklar, so dass Sie springen und schwimmen können! Ein wunderschöner Ort.
