Description

This trail leads to a large arch known as the Alum Cove Natural Bridge. Start at the parking lot which includes an outhouse, numerous picnic tables, and a picnic shelter. Follow the singletrack trail down to walk across the Natural Bridge. This natural arch is the weathered remnants of a quartz sandstone cave. Continue onward to find two caves and a number of interesting rock overhangs. There are 10 benches along the way for rest stops if needed.
