I love places off the beaten path and I love history. This stone bridge with it's beautiful arch framing a section of Little Gap Creek, satisfies both loves. It is well worth the visit even if you don't have time to do the nature trail.

We were out for a drive and thought, after seeing the sign for this site, why not find it? It was so BEAUTIFUL! A wonderful place to hike and/ or sit and meditate.
