Description

This natural bridge is a dandy. With a span of 78 feet and a rise of over 65 feet, it is one of the largest in KY, and given it's access, it is one of the most popular. This one is really neat because a sky lift on the other side of the ridge means that nearly anyone can reach the top and enjoy the spectacular views.

Short Hike: The bridge is 0.75 miles from the trailhead on the original trail, or if you choose to ride the sky lift, the walk is just a little over 400 feet. You can also access the bridge from Hood Branch Loop or a combination of trails if you want to take in all the scenery this area has to offer.

Family Friendly: From easy access to adventures galore, kids dig this bridge and revel in the overlook.
