This trail leads down to one of the largest natural bridges in this part of the country. It is in a beautiful little valley enclosed by a rugged bluff line. The natural bridge is carved from solid rock by a small creek and spans over 130 feet. The trail goes across the natural bridge and then loops

This is a great little 1.5 hr hike. (It will take that long with all the cool stuff to look at)! Take the whole loop...the "natural bridge area" is not even the best parts!

We really enjoyed this trail. The natural bridge is pretty amazing and there is a lovely stream and cool overhang caves to wander through on the bluff when you take the full loop. The trailhead has a really nice picnic area, ample parking and toilets available. Be aware -- we almost missed this trail because the directions online said to go 1 mile on 327. Wrong. It's 3 miles after you turn off of Hwy 16.

Having just spent a few hours hiking another trail, we chose to just loop around and under the bridge and head back out. Amazing! We'll have to come back some time and check out the rest of the trail.

We LOVED this trail. It's probably one of my new favorites because it had it all: several (one giant) natural bridges that you can access from above and below, a beautiful waterfall, amazing rock formations/bluffs, caves, and beautiful greenery and river/creek areas that you cross. Beautiful, and fun- the right length for kids or pets too! We'll be back for sure.
