Overview Service & Activities
About Distance, round trip: 3 miles Difficulty: easy Estimated time: 1-2 hours Trailhead: Bridge Bay Marina parking lot near the campground entrance road. The bike trail to the bridge begins just south of the marina off the main road. The natural bridge is a 51 foot cliff of rhyolite rock cut through by Bridge Creek. The hiking trail meanders through the forest for 1/4 mile. It then joins a service road and continues to the right (west) for 1 mile to the Natural Bridge. The short but steep switchback trail to the top of the bridge starts in front of the interpretive exhibit. Above the natural bridge, the trail crosses the creek through a narrow ravine and then continues along the cliff before rejoining the road. Exercise caution when crossing the ravine. Note: To protect this fragile resource, the top of the bridge is closed to hiking. Caution: *Trail closed until early summer while bears feed on spawning trout in Bridge Creek. Inquire at the Fishing Bridge Visitor Center for opening date and other closures.
