“VA's newest state park”
Once owned by Thomas Jefferson and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 215-foot tall Natural Bridge is a limestone gorge carved out by Cedar Creek. The newest Virginia State Park is more than just the bridge. Beautiful forests, open, rolling meadows showcase the area’s karst terrain, and vistas of surrounding mountains and the James River valley display nature’s splendor. Access these via 6 miles of hiking trails, including the accessible Cedar Creek Trail that leads from the bridge to the Monacan Indian Village and Lace Falls with its 30-foot cascade. Living history programs connect you to the past and cover how people once used the area’s resources for survival and inspiration. Start at the visitor center where you will find exhibits and a gift shop. A shuttle from the visitor center to the bridge trail is available for those not wishing to take the stairs. Admission per person is $6 for ages 6-12 and $8 for those 13 and older.
Definitely worth the stop and the 8 bucks! The bridge is breath taking and there is a lot of history. There is a "waterfall" at the end. Unless you really want to see a very disappointing water cascade don't bother but it's a very easy short walk so if you want to stretch your legs go for it but other wise just walk down to the bridge and turn back.
We loved this place. Stopped in iur way from NY to TN. It was a great place to stretch and move and experience aome of natures amazing beauty. My teenage boys loved it as well. Short easy hike from natural bridge to a small waterfall. Definitely worth the stop.
Definitely worth the stop and the eight dollars! It is a 2 mile walk (round trip) and is a great way to stretch your legs after being on the road for a few hours. The bridge is breathtaking, and the sound of the creek is very relaxing. PUP friendly as well!
Very quick walk (or ride if you choose) 8 dollars per adult and while someone does check your "ticket" before you get to the bride it is worth it. A quick stop for an awesome view. Great for pictures and a leg stretch.
Great place to stop and stretch. The native village was so fun and educational for the little ones.

Stopped on our drive to Maine from TN. It was easy to find, has a large shop, $7-8 entrance fee, restrooms, and is a nice walk. We only went to the bridge, which is amazing to see in person, because it was pouring and they were worried about flooding. Even in the rain it was a beautiful spot. Definitely worth the stop. The area also seemed to have a lot to offer, if we had more time I think there is a lot to do.
