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.

Beautiful views! There are a lot of stairs coming back up if you decide to go to the top first then down to the bottom to do the loop, but you can go to the bottom first and take the stairs down if you’d prefer. We parked in the picnic area and walked the trail along the road to get to the trailhead of the loop. This trail is well kept.

Great hike! Kids loved it!

Short easy hike with beautiful views. There are lots of stairs at the end (or beginning) depending on how you start on the loop. I always take the stairs way first, to avoid having to walk up them at the very end. To do so, from the parking lot take the on the right, rather than walking straight to the Overlook.

Excellent views easy trail

We did the loop starting on the dirt path and going below the arch then climbing to the top. Nice views and easy.

Easy to find, park, and hike! Paved most of the way now with my well maintained rails and steps. Great for a group with disparate skills or kids.

Beautiful views. The loop takes you across the arch and down underneath it. If climbing steep stairs is not your thing I suggest taking the loop counter clockwise.

Great views and a nice leisurely hike. Easy for kids. I would suggest going counter clockwise in this trail. Go down the steep stairs at the start ;)

Beautiful views- definitely take the connector trail from atop the natural bridge to battleship rock- stunning views! The actual trail to the bridge is about a mile and the last .5 mi is very steep and rocky, so I’d give this a moderate rating.

Great arch front above and below. There are some serious stairs though. Absolutely worth it.

Natural arch is large, but heavy traffic makes it more touristy. Good views.

3/30/2019 - A lot of well-constructed stairs and a clear, well-maintained trail. Slightly muddy in some areas after recent storms. Short approach but the stairs make it challenging if you don't pace yourself. Tons of tourists & families made it challenging to get good pictures but it's definitely possible. It would be worth going when there is less traffic, perhaps much earlier in the day or on a weekday. The bridge is beautiful!

Easiest hike in the Gorge except for Chimney Top. Great Arch to see from top to bottom.
