|The dirt trail to the bridge is a short, 1/3 mile loop through a mature oak-hickory and beech forest. As the trail descends to the creek you will come upon an overlook revealing the bridge from above. |
This natural bridge is made of sandstone, a fairly soft and erodible bedrock. The arch was made by water erosion.
The site was a popular tourist spot even in 1877 when the unknown artist's sketch above was drawn.
