Natural Bridge State Park

Natural Bridge State Park

Eastern Kentucky is full of things to do and see and the Natural Bridge State Park is one of them. This park is located near Cliffview Resort and the Daniel Boone National Forest.

The park gets its name from the natural sandstone arch that was formed after millions of years. It is located near the Red River Gorge Geological Area, which is also near the Daniel Boone National Forest.

The arch is 65 feet high and spans 78 feet. Visitors can take in views from the top with the park’s sky lift.

In addition to the arch, there are several hiking trails and naturalists programs in the area. The trails range in length anywhere from half of a mile to 7.5 miles. Maps of the trails can be found at the Hemlock, which features a nature center on the ground floor of its activities center.

Naturalists offer year-round programs focusing on plants, animals, geology and local history. Recreation staff direct daily summer activities.
