The park is well worth the stop. If you have the time, you can be here for 2-3 hours easily. The trail to the natural bridge, (Cedar Creek Trail) the remainder of a cave carved out by water, is easy. Continue on to a lovely...More

The natural bridge is really something else. We were on our way back home from a trip to NC and saw an ad for a "natural bridge" and decided to check it out. We were led to a desolate parking lot probably due to the...More

The natural bridge of Virginia was an amazing experience! The bridge was stunning and I highly recommend completing the hike (as its not very long and pretty easy) and reaching the waterfall. There is a display of the Monocan Tribe, which was closed at the...More

The park is beautiful, the bridge is amazing, and a nice, easy 2 mile hike to the waterfalls. My 13 year old son even enjoyed it...which says a lot!

It is nothing but some natural formation and doesn’t worth visiting it. I thought it might be good for kids atleast but NO. There is a water fall which is also not good. Please rethink if you want to visit this place

The shuttle bus actually has a ramp, not steps. It is fully handicapped accessible. I’m a retired soldier and have problems with my feet from time to time and this bus was amazing and a lifesaver.
