The natural bridge itself is an amazing sight. Not sure it’s worthy of an $8 admission, though. And the site is not terribly well maintained. Walking trail along the stream was OK, but benches set up for viewing nearest the bridge itself were desperately in need of repair, stripping, and refinishing. The visitor center and gift shop had a heavy smell of mold and mildew. Staff there didn’t seem all that helpful, either; I had to ask before I was given a printed guide to the walking trail after paying our $16 fee.

Summary: The Bridge itself is really something to see. But the site needs some upgrading and management attention.

After you pay your significant entrance fee and find your way through the gift shop to the start of the trail, it finally starts to be enjoyable. The hike to the Natural Bridge is pretty. The bridge itself is lovely. We are just two seniors traveling. If I was traveling as a family I would possibly skip this stop. It would be expensive and add the distraction of an exceptionally large gift shop with children, that would potentially add to the cost. I would suggest you find a hike in the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway instead.

The bridge is cool, and the walking trail on the rest of the property is very nice and also has other great views. It is pet friendly.

We checked this out after Virginia Safari Tour and enjoyed it very much. We had kids aged 4-14 and they all loved it. It was affordable, less than $30 for our family of six. The full way is 1.8 miles total and once you get down about five flights of steps it’s all flat walking. Lots of beautiful photo opportunities, and in the fall with the leaves changing it was picturesque. If you do the whole tour you end up seeing the natural bridge, creeks, a saltpeter cave, and Indian village, and a waterfall.

Interesting learning how this bridge was created, George Washington surveyed the land, what is saltpeter, see 1600 year old white cedar tree and the land was once owned by Thomas Jefferson. If you are not able to take the stairs, there is a shuttle to the bridge area. There is a pavillion with tables, chairs and restrooms.Walking path is easy and well maintained. Don't forget to walk to see the waterfall at the end of the path.

This park just happened to be on my scenic tour to someplace else. I am so happy I stopped, the park was fabulous. Not only was it an easy hike but the trail was well maintained asphalt. They had a Native American exhibit that was outstanding. Also water falls. Aside from the fall foliage, It was raining when I visited so it was very peaceful and beautiful. I did notice as I was leaving that some families brought older relatives walking with canes. I would not recommend this unless the park has an alternate method for getting folks to the trail. The main path has many stairs. Well worth your time. Even if you have to travel out of your way for it.

Go out to this place and take a 0.9 mile hike thru the bridge. A very easy walk after you get down the stairs. They do have a bus. Come after 10AM and see the recreated Indian village with actors who will speak to you.

We are so glad we decided to visit the Natural Bridge when we were in the Lynchburg, VA area. This hidden gem is well worth the $8.00 per person admission price. The bridge itself is a natural wonder and very cool to see. In addition, there is a mile long self-guided hike from the Natural Bridge to Lace Waterfalls. Along the way, there a many well-marked points of interest to check out including a Monacan Indian Village where docents in period costume answer questions about how the Monacan Indians lived. Interesting for anyone no matter what age, but definitely great for school-aged children. My husband and I really enjoyed our hike and all the interesting things we learned.

A beautiful wonder. There were also Indians inside tepees that you could visit. Lots of history here. George Washington even carved his initials into the bridge Indians were there as well. Nice visit.
