For history enthusiasts, this is a very nice site. The stone bridge is old and is just off the main road, easily accessable.

I love places off the beaten path and I love history. This stone bridge with it's beautiful arch framing a section of Little Gap Creek, satisfies both loves. It is well worth the visit even if you don't have time to do the nature trail.
