Natural Bridge Nature Trail

Length: 1.3 miles

Type: Hiking Trail

Difficulty: Moderate to Strenuous

Description:  Starting from the Park Office, this moderately strenuous, well-marked 1.3-mile loop will provide you with a 1 hour getaway in the land that Cherokee Indians once traversed. The most distinguishing feature of this trail, the natural bridge, provides a natural fixture for you to cross Poe Creek, which you will follow for a short distance of your hike. You will enjoy the melodic sound of a tributary of the park’s major attraction, Lake Keowee, while surrounded by mountain laurel, blueberries, and Bowman’s root. Wildlife you may encounter will consist of the occasional white tail deer, chipmunk, or salamander. This trail offers you a pleasant place to connect with the gorgeous foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Type: Hiking Trail

Difficulty: Moderate to Strenuous
