Travel Tips for Natural Bridge

Lost River mystery

by matcrazy1

I probably wouldn't stop on Cedar Creek Nature Trail and wouldn't pay any attention to this hole in a rock with water on the ground in my picture if I hadn't seen the information table on Lost River which said that about 1812, workmen from the Saltpetre Cave heard the waters of the Lost River, and blasted the opening to it at this place. A water main was attached to transport water to the hoppers and kettles used to extraxt the nitrate from the cave.

Legend has it that, in later years, several unsuccessful attempts were made to locate the underground channels of the Lost River. Colored dyes and flotation devices of all types have failed to determine the source and final destination of this mysterious subterranean river.

Wonderful Natural Bridge

"The Bridge and More"

Natural Bridge is located near I-81 which is the main highway which runs through the Virginia mountains from southwest to north east. We stopped here to see the bridge and were amazed at all there is to do.
