Striking? Majestic? Visit the monumental National Historic Landmark & discover why photos don't do it justice, nor words describe it, and why the awe-struck Thomas Jefferson bought it.

Just 15 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway; off I-81, exits 175 & 180.

Nice stop off Route 81 on our travels down south. The Natural Bridge is approx 1/4 mile walk from entrance. From there you can walk to a small Native American exhibit and water falls. Tickets are $8 a person.

Well worth the $8.00 adult ticket. Amazing history (we had no idea before we arrived). Amazing to think George Washington surveyed the bridge and it was owned by Thomas Jefferson. Many other presidents and famous people in history have visited too. When we first saw the natural bridge we were astounded by the sheer size. Also a very beautiful walk... More

If you are in Southern Virginia along I-81, it is worth the stop. It's inexpensive and beautiful. I wasn't aware of the historical connections with Thomas Jefferson and George Washington until I visited. The bridge is impressive, and the setting is beautiful. We walked along the path to the waterfall at the end. The waterfall was a little anticlimactic (more... More

This state park, and the beautiful natural scenery is worth the money and time to walk through. There are quite a few steps down to the walking path heading to the Natural Bridge, but there is also a shuttle van that will drive you down and back if needed. The staff is very friendly and the grounds are very well... More

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to the Natural Bridge State Park. We spent about 1.5-2 hours there, enjoying our hike to see the Natural Bridge and Lace Falls. It was absolutely beautiful. Relax and soak in what nature offers. There's a small Indian village with demos for the little ones to enjoy. Even though the trail is fairly... More

It's amazing how nature does it's thing! I just kept looking all over, everything was so beautiful. Nature gives you so much adventure to learn off of. You should take your kids for a little history and some fun!

My family loved the 2 hours we spent at the natural bridge. You get to see the bridge, an Indian village, cave,and waterfall all in about a one mile walk. Indian village interpreters were great with the kids and answered any questions. The park rangers were all extremely friendly and helpful. Just a great time with the kids.

The well marked path to the waterfall was a leisurely and educational walk that allowed my granddaughter to learn about Natural Bridge. She saw George Washington's initials, toured an Indian village, and learned a lot about local history, plants and trees. She had a fun, safe and healthy adventure exploring this part of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Natural Bridge is... More
