As scenic a view as you can find out into the Red River Gorge. This is an amazing natural bridge. There are a decent amount of stairs on this trek. My only complaint is all the carvings into the rock.

Great, short hike! Very cool to be able to stand on top of the arch and then see it from below. Loop trail with stairs. Fine for little ones if you hold their hand.

Great loop with a beautiful natural bridge. Path is paved and loops. More like a roadside attraction than a trail but still a very pleasant walk to take after a long day of hiking.

Nice quick hike. Easy to find. I really don’t get the asphalt paving. Just let people walk on earth.

Sky Bridge is a great family hike. There are a couple of drop offs, so be mindful.

Absolutely breathtaking hike. The views are amazing and walking onto the sky bridge is an amazing experience. The day we went had 25-30mph gusts of wind so it was unnerving for sure. If you are afraid of heights it’s a great hike to conquer that! Highly recommend!

Very pretty rock formations. Trails were nice but went after it rained. Pretty muddy

Great views, would be great for sunsets since it is such a short trail. I bring all friends and family visiting to this trail because it is good for even novices. Busy though, saw about 6 people on a Thursday morning. . .

Easy. Hate to see all of the damage people have done to this arch.

easy trail; even for a beginner in my opinion.

Beautiful views, but there's about 6 flights of stairs at the end. Wasn't expecting that surprise!

A enjoyable easy short trail. I took 11 Boy Scouts on this and they all loved it!

Awesome panoramic views of the Red. Not really physically demanding which allowed us to explore. Not sure if I'm being too much of a nature snob but the only downside is all the names carved in the rock as well as so chalk graffiti on the rocks. Not a huge deal, I just like to leave nature as it is rather than leave my mark.

Still a fun trail!

I want to rate this 4 stars because of the paved portion, but like the trail to half dome sometimes you got to do what you got to do to prevent erosion I guess. But come on this is a 5 star hike for sure

Easy hike, picturesque. Also provides easy access to other trails depending on how adventurous you are feeling.

Great little hike. We are a very adventurous family but occasionally a nice mild hike with amazing views of the Gorge is relaxing. The only reason we would not do this hike again is because there are so many more trails to experience. If you have not taken this trail do yourself a favor and do it. Fun for the whole family.
