    Kentucky's Natural Bridge

    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.

    YOU CAN HIKE TO THE BRIDGE OR TAKE THE SKY LIFT, NEXT YOU CAN WATCH YOUR KIDS PLAY IN THE CREEK OR GO SWIMMING IN THE POOL. Friday and Saturday they have entertainment at Hoedown island and THATS IT
    Nice place just to sit and relax though
    Pets are not allowed anywhere except in campground

    the bridge from below

    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.
