Natural Bridge

Natural Bridge – 3mi / 4.8km

Tucked away in the forest lies a wonderful arch with a stream trickling through it. This level hike starts from the Bridge Bay Marina parking lot. It follows along the edge of the trees near the bay, giving filtered views of the marina, before heading directly into the forest.

The trail is easy walking and eventually intersects the old road where bicycle travel is permitted. Travel up this road to the right, following Bridge Creek upstream, all the way to the natural bridge. An interpretive sign sits below the bridge. A steeper trail loops up to the bridge and around it giving you an up close and personal view.

Walking on or climbing the bridge itself is prohibited to protect the bridge and its visitors.

Trailhead: The signed trailhead for Natural Bridge is located in the parking lot of the Bridge Bay Marina. The signed trailhead for the old road that allows hiking and biking is located just south of Bridge Bay on Grand Loop Road.
