Create an itinerary including Natural Bridge State Resort Park
Named after the massive rock bridge that forms the centerpiece of the park, Natural Bridge State Resort Park presents a variety of hiking trails and stunning vistas. The park spans approximately 930 hectares (2,300 acres), over half of which have been designated as a nature preserve to protect the array of flora and fauna that live here. You can hike to the 20 m (65 ft) high sandstone arch or enjoy a ride on the sky lift, located just a short walk from the park entrance, that ends within 183 m (600 ft) of the bridge. The park's trails range from moderate to strenuous in difficulty, traversing uneven ground, but you're rewarded with unmatched scenery. The 0.8-km (0.5-mile) Original Trail leading to the natural bridge dates from the 1890s. Keep in mind that hiking off-trail is not permitted.

  • This is such a fun experience. Great for people who like to enjoy the fun outdoors Travelers and tourists this review is for you: We hiked an intermediate trail. Took three hours total. There are a number of trails of different difficulty, read signs thoroughly! Make sure to follow all road signs ie the lift up to the natural bridge and gift shop is to the left and the hiking trails are to the right near the lodge. Thanks from Pa
  • Decent campground. The sites are a little close but fine. Good hike that allows dogs from the campground. Dump station is in a crazy place that is about impossible to get to with a big rig. Miguel’s pizza down the road was good. Natural Bridge is a good hike (but no dogs).
