The cavern is easily accessible from the highway and a simple hike. A quant gift shop is the gateway to the carved tunnel that brings you under the mountain. An easy walk, but wet and slippery in spots, brings you to multiple small hollows under...More

Well worth the money to experience the beautiful sites. The natural bridge s he best to be followed by the cave. The indian village was educational. The falls we're OK. The falls would have been better if you could get closer.

No really, it was a nice break from the summer heat... it was nice and cool in the caverns. Our guide did an excellent job. He seemed very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and seemed to genuinely enjoy showing people this special place.

Very nice guided tour which lasts about 45 to 50 minutes. I believe tours leave about every 30 minutes. I wore jeans and just a short sleeve shirt and was comfortable. If you are sensitive to cold, bring a sweatshirt or sweater. Comfortable shoes are...More

There are far better caverns than Natural Bridge Caverns -- those are rather small and limited in number as far as formations are concerned. Did a combined ticket of the caverns with Natural Bridge (which also includes a... More
