Such a beautiful fun place to go! The fee is only $3.50 and the bridge is only about 100 yards away from the check in area. There is an additional optional 3/4 mile hike that goes past the bridge and explores a ton of other natural features further up the canyon with some caves, small waterfalls and a nice creek. Honestly a super beautiful place, and I will definitely come back another time. If you are in to geology, this place is a must see. So many amazing things to see.
Absolutely stunning place! We did the trail portion and it definitely added to our experience -- just gorgeous. It is super buggy, so bring spray! It was also good to go on a weekday as it wasn’t busy at all - we walked/hiked the whole trail alone and only saw a few people at the gift shop. The gift shop was really cute! Overall, it was a hidden gem in Alabama!
This is our second visit to Natural Bridge and it’s got to be the best deal for $3.50 for sightseeing in 100 miles! The bridge and cave is beautiful. The gift shop is funky, old fashioned and fun. The trail after the bridge is nice. The trail closest to the bridge has two trees down across the path, but if you take the further out path, you can walk a nice 1 mile loop trail. This is not a handicap accessible trail, lots of roots, rocky steps and bridges raised higher than a normal step, but it’s a lovely walk in the woods following a small creek with little waterfalls along the way. Enjoy!
Such a stunning and relaxing place for an adventure. We were coming through to see The Ramp School of Ministry and stopped here after a llloooong car ride. We enjoyed it so much! Prepare to feel small and have the urge to take many photos
This was such a fun outing with our kids. The walk is short and very easy and the bridge is beautiful! You get to walk through the little "cave" area that passes under the bridge. It's also very inexpensive. We had a blast!
