Natural Bridge Trail, located near Lake Village, offers an easy 3 mile roundtrip hike. The natural bridge is a 51 ft. (18 m) high cliff of rhyolite rock that has been cut through by the erosional forces of Bridge Creek. The trail from the campground meanders through the forest for 1.2 mile (0.8 km). It then joins the road and continues to the right (west) for 1 mile (1.5 km) before reaching the Natural Bridge. The short but steep switchback trail to the top of the bridge starts in front of the interpretive exhibit. To protect this fragile resource, the top of the bridge is closed to hiking. However, good views may be attained next to the bridge. The bicycle trail to the bridge begins just south of the marina off the main road. The trail is closed from late spring to early summer due to bears feeding on spawning trout
in Bridge Creek. Inquire at the Visitor Center about trail closures before hiking or bicycling these trails.

Directions: From Bridge Bay Campground, Park at the Bridge Bay Marina parking lot. To reach the Bridge Bay Campground, travel east on Hwy. 20 for 27 miles and at Hwy. 191 turn left. The campground is on the right a few miles down. The East Entrance is 53 miles east of Cody.
