Great Hike!

Lots of marked trails! Able to go about on your own also- but I'm not very good at that. Lots of variety on easy, medium, and hard trails. Fall Foliage is the best time, but... read more

This place is absolutely awesome. There is so much to do. My boyfriend and I went here on spring break. When we first arrived, we hiked up to the bridge. It was a bit tough to get up there, but the views were amazing. There was a cool bridge we walked across over water as well. We ended up camping... More

Wanted to do something different for the weekend. My family and I decided that climbing Natural Bridge was the thing for the day. After climbing Natural Bridge, we decided to stay at eat at the restaurant. The good was delicious, I had cat fish, salad and green beans. The buffet meal was good. None of us complained, the cobbler was... More

I visited the natural bridge April 11th it was a very enjoyable experience. I would recommend this place to other people. We didn't wear the proper clothing but yet it was a enjoyable place to be if I lived in the area I'd visit more often.

The trails at Natural Bridge are great if you have small children. The main trail is not too long and the inclines are not extremely steep. Young children are able to handle this (as long as they can walk on their own). Not recommended if you bring a stroller or if you are going to carry your child the whole... More

So glad we stopped here! Took the chair lift up (caution if you're scared of heights!) and when you get off the lift one trail takes you to a look out point where you can see the bridge from afar and take great pictures. The other side takes you to the top of the bridge. I assume it was a... More

I have hiked the Natural Bridge trails for 50 years! Great beauty! More wild flowers than anywhere else! For a "quick" trip to the bridge, I would recommend going up the original trail (1/2 mile), going through "Fat Man's Misery," crossing the bridge, then going back across the bridge to take the 3/4 mile trail down. Don't miss the cave... More

Loved every bit of it and cannot wait to come back. Definitely take walking sticks, water and some snacks and make a day of it. The pictures you'll take on your phone just don't do it justice. We made some incredible memories and it was bittersweet leaving.

We came to spend some time at the Cliffview Resort Lodge and did this as part of our first day. The Original Trail is quite the claim but does have places to rest that are helpful. I would recommend that trail (#1 on the map) up to and on top of the bridge, and then take #2 on the map... More
