The Beautiful Bridge Hike In Wyoming That Will Completely Mesmerize You
With so many incredible sights to see in America’s most gorgeous National Park, it’s easy to overlook some of the more underrated trails. One such trail is over by the Bridge Bay Marina and Campground and will lead you a stunning Natural Bridge hidden in the protected forest.
The path to the Yellowstone Natural Bridge is gradual and easy - the out-and-back trail is just under 3 miles long.
Enjoy scenic forest views and panoramic vistas along the way. Most hikers spend under two hours here, but you could easily take longer if you stop and enjoy the view.
The highlight of this trail is the Yellowstone Natural Bridge itself - it's quite an impressive rock formation!
This incredible, 30' gap was carved by water millions of years ago, leaving one large chunk of rock to span it.
The climb up towards the Natural Bridge is steep, but efforts have been made to create rock stairs, and if you're careful, it shouldn't be hard.
While you can't stand on the Natural Bridge itself, you can climb up around it, and look down to the ground below.
From here, you'll find one of the best, most underrated views in Yellowstone National Park.
