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

Nice little trail, the Rock formations and small caves were really neat to explore.

We came to this trail in August 2017. Weather was actually very nice. 76*. Trail needed a good grooming and as we came up to the top of the bridge we were a bit underwhelmed; however underneath the bridge was quite neat! We did not go down to the cave this trip but are planning to come back in the spring! Would love to see this with water. Grounds were clean great place to picnic.

The Natural Bridge was really amazing! It rained quite a lot so the waterfall was also great! It's an easy hike! Definitely happy we went!

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.
