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 hike. It was worth hiking the loop. Several frozen waterfalls.

Lovely. The bridge and caves are surely interesting. Great for kids or those looking for not too much of a challenge.

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.

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.

Hiked this short trail with my family on a beautiful late fall day. This is a great little gem that is a fairly easy walk and makes a great afternoon outing. Beautiful and unique area hidden away in a picturesque valley.
