Our only fully sunny day so we took full advantage of being outdoors starting with the Natural Bridge State Park. Though not yet open for the season, it was worth the short hike in anyway. The hikes included hills but had cleared walkways that made...More

The park is a nice well-tended respite from civilization, with signs that help recall the area's history as a mill town and marble quarry. The natural bridge itself is quite striking and it's wonderful to watch the water where it's smashed against the rocks for...More

Huge and Beautiful white marble amphithéâtre style formation precedes the walk up to the natural bridge. Only a small portion of the bridge remains but there are plenty of other water worn formations to marvel at. Worth the trip if you're vacationing in the area....More

Is there a wheelchair accessible way to see the bridge/falls? What is the surface on the trail?

As I recall there are several viewpoints accessed by stairs, so not accessible.
Hi, Did you travel to Natural Bridge State Park before Columbus Day? Website states they are closed after Columbus Day, just wondering if you can still access park? Thanks. Jen

A few years back we parked below the gate and hiked in off-season. I don't recall if there was signage discourging that but I do not beleive there was. It's not a short hike, and it is all uphill, though :)
