History

The main history of this trail is the hiking trail that this road leads to and is named after, called the Natural Bridge. It is named so because as history and erosion etched away the rocks of the landscape it slowly formed a 100-foot long, 10 by 10 thick rock bridge in the valley, this can be walked across and explored on foot, along a .3 mile hiking loop.
