Actually got my not very active husband to get his hiking sticks and go to the bridge! there is a bit of an incline on the way up, but not hard. The bridge is a natural work of art. The valley view on the way...More

The beginning of the trail has a bit of an incline but not too hard. The Natural Bridge is not too far up the trail. After it there are a couple of dry waterfalls, and the trail pretty much ends after that.

About a mile trek back to the bridge formations. Loose gravel and uphill all the way but not a hard walk. The bridge formations were interesting but not spectacular.

Nice canyon with a little climb in the beginning. It's worth while walking further. Don't walk this in summer, it's far too hot.

Great little short hike to see the Natural Bridge. The first section is uphill but not very strenuous. The canyon continues a bit further past the natural bridge and ends at a dry falls. We went late in the afternoon so it was neat to...More

The road going in (1.5 mile) is rough in places – we drove a Toyota Prius. There were places that were really washboard but we just drove on the other side (when no one was coming) so it wasn’t bad then. Once at the parking...More
