I did the right side trail and the left side. Trail winded me on the way back up but so worth it. The views are amazing.

The path as labelled on AllTrails is an easy walk. There's also further along that you can go which is extremely steep and takes you to the viewpoint between the rocks. Overall, beautiful and well worth the additional hike.

A lot of these reviews are filled with fear mongering which almost made me miss out on this amazing opportunity. The trail to the left is all of 10 feet to a bridge with a great view of the arches. The trail to the right is a steep trail that leads down to actually being able to walk across the arches. Be smart. Don’t do it if the trail is wet. Wear proper shoes, I never slipped wearing hiking boots. Dont take small children. Also I have asthma and forgot my inhaler and got back up to the parking lot just fine. This trail is not strenuous. Please don’t let the ridiculous comments here prevent you from experiencing it like I almost did.

I'm not sure what you see from the right path. The left path of paved and takes you to a wooden platform where you can see the arches just fine. Easy enough for anyone and very short walk.

Real pretty through the woods and ferns. Poison oak everywhere so beware. Easy enough until it ISN’T! I had to slide down the sketchy trail on my butt because I had bald shoe tread and no hiking sticks. If you don’t have the greatest balance you need these things so you don’t slide down and over the 150+ ft cliff. But once you get there it’s AMAZING!

Only go as far as the bridge for a safe viewing.

I want to start out by saying the end result and view would be stunningly beautiful. HOWEVER, I can’t fathom how this trail is rated anything but difficult, and it is very dangerous. I attempted the trail to the right of the parking lot. It started to lead us down towards the natural bridges, but it was extremely steep and very slippery. That first steep decline would have you rolling down the trail and straight off the cliff if one were to lose their footing and take a tumble. There’s not much to be able to reach out for should that happen. It was too risky for my blood personally. I’ve seen my share of trails and this was not worth the risk continuing on. It could be that it’s heavily eroded now, and possibly not previously so treacherous. I would currently rate this as DIFFICULT.

Did not complete the trail because kids didn’t have hiking footwear. It was a pretty narrow trail at high elevation. Sunny but chilly afternoon, beautiful view of land bridge. Pacific is so blue.

So if you take the trail to the left, it’s an easy hike down and beautiful views from the bridge . Literally anyone can do it. Now if you take it to the RIGHT!!! Wowza... very steep dangerous and scary but so much worth the views are INSANE !!!!!! Be very very careful!!!! You can die!!!. No kids no dogs recommended no one that’s not skilled recommended

Absolutely stunning, take the path that goes over the natural bridges!

steep trek after the warning sign, but the views are well worth it.

Great views but this is not an easy trail. The trails are also a little confusing as they are not clearly marked. The trail on the left leads to a viewpoint of Natural Bridge and then goes further along the coast. The trail on the right goes down to the coast as well but is very steep and slippery.

Absolutely stunning. BUT, I would not rate this as easy. To get to the top of the arch was tricky, the trail is dusty which makes it slippery, there are lots of roots sticking out that can trip you up. The trail is narrow with no protective barrier on the side that leads to quite a drop. There were frequently broken trees over the path that we had to climb over. We are fit so it wasn’t too hard but my parents had to stop before we could reach the end. I wouldn’t recommend this for small children either. That said the views were stunning.

Beautiful views!! The only thing I will say is for an amateur, like myself, it was very easy to veer off the trail....I’m not sure exactly what trails I was hiking but they were in the area and gorg! The kids (5&9) enjoyed the quick hike and views.

Beautiful and a must see. Go when it’s not busy. Plan to stop at all the viewpoints or even better walk the coast trail between them.

This is a beautiful trail along the beautiful Oregon coast - definitely worth your time. The trail itself is narrow - not difficult but if it had been raining within the last few days the mud will make it difficult and a little risky to traverse if you don’t have good balance. Also, I’ll say that while there are markers on the trail, they are very easy to miss and with so many offshoots of the trail that lead to great viewpoints that you will want to take, I can see people getting lost easily. Pay close attention or download the offline map. Finally, while this listing states it’s great March through October I would recommend late March if March at all - while it’s beautiful in winter there is a lot of leafless trees that in certain would make the trail even more breathtaking if viewed when spring has sprung. April through October would be the best time to partake IMO.

Going south on the Oregon Coast trail from the Thunder Rock Cove pullout,the trail goes through forrest.At Natural Bridges there is a nice view.Continuing south it comes to open area above a cove.Further south the trail goes to another view area before dropping down to beautiful China Beach.

This place was unbelievable

I'll have to do this one again. I couldn't figure out the trail. I saw that it's the one to the right of the parking lot, but then it just brings you to another parking lot. I saw a turn and it didn't look like it went anywhere. So I didn't get to see too many views. But what I got to see was still beautiful.
