With stunning geological features and sweeping views, Natural Bridge is one of the most popular outdoor destinations in not only Kentucky, but the entire region. Both Natural Bridge State Resort Park and its namesake rock formation sit within the popular climbing and outdoor mecca known as the Red River Gorge Geologic Area. Formed over millions of years, the sandstone arch stretches more than 75 feet long and 65 feet high.

There are several options for exploring Natural Bridge. One unique way is by sky lift, which soars through forest canopies to the top of the ridge, affording complete views of the arch. After you’ve admired the formation from afar, a short trail takes you from the sky lift drop-off to the base of Natural Bridge, which visitors are encouraged to walk across. Take advantage of the park's lodge and campgrounds to make your visit into a vacation amid some of the Bluegrass State's prettiest settings.
