“natural sandstone arch turned into a bridge”
Natural Bridge State Resort Park is a Kentucky state park located in Powell and Wolfe Counties along the Middle Fork of the Red River, adjacent to the Red River Gorge Geologic Area and surrounded by the Daniel Boone National Forest. Its namesake natural bridge is the centerpiece of the park.
This is my favorite place on the face of this earth. I want to move out here in a cabin once I retire and live happily ever after!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the red river gorge!!! :D
Whether you take the chair lift or one of the many trails, this is a beautiful spot you have to see for yourself. There aren't any railings on the actual bridge so be careful with little ones.
This park is amazing. It is definitely worth visiting each year. There are great trails and plenty of rustic campsites. HIGHLY recommended.
Beautiful!!! Well worth enduring the humidity to hike as much as you can throughout the park. Well maintained trails and incredible scenery!
A strenuous but very pleasant 1mi hike from our parking lot, this was a wonderful outdoors addition to our itinerary. The leg back was all downhill, and our 6 and 9 y/o did well and enjoyed the little caves and alcoves. There are other parking lots closer to the bridge and a few other trails. We heard great things about this park and the many trails from locals. If I knew, I would have planned a little more time there.
Stayed at the park lodge and did some hiking. We spent about 2 hours taking the Original Trail to the arch bridge then up on top to Lovers Leap and back down via Devils Gultch. Very beautiful and got some good exercise. Lodge room was comfy with a nice view. Ate lunch at the resturant, it was good food at a reasonable price. Ate dinner at Miguel's Pizza, I would recommend stopping in there as well.
Loved it!!! We only had time for the Original Trail so would love to go back for more trails. However the Original Trail up to the natural bridge was amazing!! It is a little steep and slick in spots but our three little kids did the whole hike to underneath the bridge. Myself and a couple adults went up top the bridge. Wow!! Soooo beautiful!! I could've stayed up there for hours!! It was amazing!!!
Tough hike but loved where it took us. Well worth the work. Up stairs on the side of the mountain. Into a crack in the rock. You will love where you end up.
Amazing! The trails are fantastic. The cabins are wonderful.
Beautiful place, though we saw just a part of it. Be sure to have water!
