Overview

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. Follow the creekside trail to Lace Falls. Gather around Interpreters in the Monacan Indian Village. Make it a brief visit, or a day, or overnight on-site; packages available. Just 15 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway; off I-81, exits 175 & 180.

We really enjoyed seeing the natural bridge. Very unique and amazing. The path to the indian village is a nice walk. The waterfall was not worth the walk unless you just enjoy the walk, The waterfall was just a let down.

The trail is beautiful with a lot of history along the way. We actually saw some wildlife along the way. We ate in one of the two cafes there and looked the huge gift shop. I was happy to see they allow well behaved dogs...More

What a truly amazing natural site! The bridge and the waterfall were both beautiful! The walkway was very well groomed and everywhere you looked was more beautiful nature! We absolutely loved it as well as the grandchildren did!

You have to go to this place. I heard about it through my travel companion, and since the park is right next door to where we stayed (Natural Bridge Hotel), it was very convenient. It's a little dramatic on the way with all the information...More

I could’ve skipped the bridge on our trip. I like natural formations but not for $20. The Native American village was cool and accurate in its replica but awkwardly staffed.

This exceeded our expectations and was way better than I could've ever imagined. We went in the morning soon after it opened and loved it. It was still cool outside and not very crowded at all. The bridge is right when you get on the...More

Pictures cannot do this natural wonder justice. A lot of walking but so worth a visit! If you want to save some steps skip the waterfall. It’s pretty but not amazing.

The Natural Bridge is truly one of GOD's Wonder! The bridge from the stream below to its upper surface is 215 feet, which is higher that Niagara Falls. Go for a weekend.
