Focus on: Environment

Description:

The 215-foot tall limestone gorge carved by the Cedar Creek is not the only awe-inspiring view that makes up Virginia’s newest state park! Forests, meadows, mountains, and the James River Valley attract countless visitors to Natural Bridge State Park each year.

The Natural Bridge was once a sacred site of the Monacan tribe, who believed it to be a site of victory over pursuing the Powhatans years before Europeans settled in Virginia. During the 18th and 19th centuries, Natural Bridge was one of the tourist attractions of the new world that Europeans came to see! William Cullen Bryant remarked that Natural Bridge and Niagara falls were the two most remarkable features of North America. Spend a weekend exploring the richness of Natural State Park, while providing service, which could include trail maintenance and park restoration!
