  • A short walk to the white marble arch, the only one in North America. Part of the trail is closed to the public. Nice folliage on the way!

  • This place was awesome even though part of the walkway was closed you could still see everything. The view of the surrounding area is breath taking.

  • Part of the path was blocked off but over what we saw. Closes at 430 so make sure you get there with time to explore. Need at least 30 mins.

  • Very scenic place. Setting is idyllic. It's nice to look at the old marble quarry. The natural bridge itself isn't very large, but it is still pretty cool. The marble dam is also unique. Unfortunately, many of the viewing platforms were blocked off. Hopefully, they are able to open these soon. Sculpture gardens is one of a kind. Visitor center gives good info on the history of the marble quarry. They do have some nature trails in the surrounding woods as well which are also pretty nice.
  • Amazing place to check out, was very happy to make a stop here. The size of this natural wonder really only comes to life in person. Standing under this rock was breathtaking. The trail is a pretty decent size as well so it's not a one and done kind of stop. There's a few things on the trail to check out, a cave, some waterfalls. There's also a lot of history at this location so be ready to peer a little bit into the past. Plenty of parking when I went and the welcome center is huge.
  • I was disappointed about part of the trail being closed. After reading some of the comments about people complaining about the cost. I am not complaining. There was no charge when i went today. It was a nice little walk. Since the main trail was closed i walked the road side to the bottom instead. Got some nice pictures.
  • Well this was a disappointing trip. I went there really wanting to see the natural bridge, and drove over an hour, to find out that it was not open to viewing. Not sure what's wrong, but the path has been blocked for at least 6 months, probably more. The drive up was pretty cool with the big rocks up 1 side and there's a pretty cool old marble dam at the top. There's a nature trail that runs a little over a mile 1 way. Also the old mill is at the bottom of the driveway. There's an art area with sculptures from high school kids from early 2000s. There are clean bathrooms at the visitor center at the top also. Maybe I'll be back 1 day to see the bridge and up my rating.
  • Very cool! Only marble dam in the US. Parts of the bridge sidewalk are under construction but still could see the gorge. Very short walk from visitor center. Beautiful scenery!
