We took the sky lift up to the bridge last may (2004) very nice scenery. Bridge view is beautiful on top, no rails though , so becareful not to fall off. Cliffs are eevrywhere in the area, be careful, especially at night! Don't mix hiking in the dark with alcohol, people die every year here from this.
The centerpiece of Natural Bridge State Resort Park is Natural Bridge. The impressive sandstone arch stands like a sentinel over this mountain hideaway, Soaring 65-feet high, 78 feet in length and 40-feet thick. You can walk across the bridge along it's 30-foot-wide level top. The only way one can reach the arch, or even see it, is on foot. Numerous trails lead to the arch, the shortest and easiest being a steep 3/4 mile climb of 500 feet. A skylift also takes visitors to within 600 feet from the top of the arch. However, to get a good view still requires climbing down from the top via a set of steep stone stairs, and a traverse through a long natural fissure known as "Fat Man's Misery."
Don't let this discourage you. More than half a million people make the trek to Natural Bridge each year. But it is not for the weak or infirm.
