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.

A beautiful place to visit, though I recommend getting there right at opening time. It took me quite a long time (30 minutes?) to get a photo of the natural bridge without people wandering into the frame. I went in the afternoon (after visiting Luray Caverns, about 2 hours north), so it was naturally bustling with visitors. The trail is... More

It had been many years since I had been here so I decided to take the trek to see it. It was as wonderful as before with the bridge above you. The Indian Village was a new thing. Sadly, the cave collapsed. In spite of that, it is an amazing site to see. Be advised that there are plenty of... More

First off, buy the combo ticket to the Natural Bridge state park and the Caverns (reviewed separately) you save about $10 adult and $6 child over the separate purchase. We walked from Rockbridge Center which is the hub (purchase tickets, gift shop, Archway cafe are inside). Don't forget to sign the guest book as you head down the stairs. Before... More

There's a very minimal cost to enter this natural wonder. It does require a little walking. There is a shuttle service in case you cannot walk up or down 137 steps. I'm very intrigued with how nature creates such a natural wonder as seen in this site. It is just off the interstate. Great place if you want to do... More

Took side trip while on I-81 to the Natural Bridge. Not a lot to do but the views were beautiful and awe-inspiring. Easy hiking on well maintained trails. Indian village attraction was very interesting as were the authentic Native-American speakers there. The Bridge is truly wonderful to view and the Falls at the end of the trail were beautiful. Very... More

Well this is some place I have past a hundred times and I finally had a chance and the time to stop. It is neat and over priced. Be sure to bring a hard hat for the kids.

Fabulous place to see, does require walking along a nice path to see everything. Great natural wonder and would visit again. Steep walk down but can take a bus both up and down.

The pictures make it look like a charming roadside attraction. They don't do it justice. It's actually breathtaking. So much larger and more impressive than a tiny screen can possibly communicate. The hike through to the waterfall is a nice, easy walk. (though trying to get a picture is a long wait there!) My 11 and 14 year old kids... More
