The Natural Bridge was simply amazing. It was a beautiful exhibit of God's glory in creation. It is a must-see.

When I got to the Natural Bridge, I was in awe of its beauty. I walked the path to check out the bridge from all angles. The bridge was magnificent and powerful. I continued to walk along the Cedar Creek nature trail. The path was so inviting. The flow of the stream soothed my soul, and the nature surrounding me... More

Visited the natural bridge enroute to Shenandoah. It was well worth the long diversion from Richmond to Shenandoah. The bridge itself is a breathtaking sight! What I liked more were the waterfall at the end of the trail and the recreated Monacan village, with its very knowledgeable and helpful guides dressed in native attire. The gift store too is worth...

To see the natural bridge was cool but it was expensive for a look and a 1 mile hike. It might have been a better deal if the native american site had been open when I visited

Believed to have been formed by the collapse of a cave formed by Cedar Creek, the Natural Bridge is a marvel of the natural world. The arch of the Bridge is taller than the falls of Niagara and to this day still serves as an actual bridge for State Route 11. The Monacan Indian tribe have a legend that the... More

We were so impressed with the 'wonder of the natural world' and are sure most people would be. There is an easy walk down to the bridge, but a coach is available for those who would find it difficult. The walk is not that far though to see he bridge. A further walk takes you to a fabulous waterfall and... More

We had never been before, so stopped while passing through the area on a road trip. Definitely something worth seeing.
