Whether you take the chair lift or one of the many trails, this is a beautiful spot you have to see for yourself. There aren't any railings on the actual bridge so be careful with little ones.

Beautiful!!! Well worth enduring the humidity to hike as much as you can throughout the park. Well maintained trails and incredible scenery!

Was a great hike to go to the Natural Bridge. Route we took was a slim walkway, but the views were amazing. So glad we did it.

A strenuous but very pleasant 1mi hike from our parking lot, this was a wonderful outdoors addition to our itinerary. The leg back was all downhill, and our 6 and 9 y/o did well and enjoyed the little caves and alcoves. There are other parking lots closer to the bridge and a few other trails. We heard great things about this park and the many trails from locals. If I knew, I would have planned a little more time there.

Stayed at the park lodge and did some hiking. We spent about 2 hours taking the Original Trail to the arch bridge then up on top to Lovers Leap and back down via Devils Gultch. Very beautiful and got some good exercise. Lodge room was comfy with a nice view. Ate lunch at the resturant, it was good food at a reasonable price. Ate dinner at Miguel's Pizza, I would recommend stopping in there as well.
