It is believed to be the largest natural travertine bridge in the world. The bridge stands 183 feet high over a 400-foot long tunnel that measures 150 feet at its widest point. Begin by following Gowan Trail, then once on the bottom there are arrows that show proper trail direction, complete the point-to-point by following the Pine trail, this brings you up the other side.

Beautiful stop for a home under a beautiful bridge! Road tripped to three other states with some pals and this was on our stop! Breath taking!

Its not as daunting as it sounds but still not for anyone sensitive to heat in the middle of summer. It is steep and rugged but a beautiful payoff

Fun place to explore. It is a short walk down under the natural bridge. My 3 year old had no problem with it. It can be a bit packed but it is still beautiful and very family friendly.
