Description

This is a nice trail with some paved sections, although it is mostly gravel up to the Natural Bridge. This section of trail is also part of the Sheltowee Trail and is the oldest trail leading to the bridge. This follows an old logging road that was improved by the CCC, and you'll see remains of their shelters and retaining walls on your way up to the top.

Flora & Fauna

Chipmunks, squirrels, mixed hardwoods, ferns, and hemlock can be found in this area.
