Natural Bridge Trail is a beautiful and somewhat strenuous 1.3 mile-loop hike located in Keowee Toxaway State Park. It features several small waterfalls and a large natural stone bridge spanning Poe Creek. The trailhead is located at the Jocassee Gorges Visitor Center. Both directions on the hike are similarly strenuous as both descend and ascend quickly to a waterfall at the bottom of the trail. The natural bridge was carved by years of erosion under and through the boulder that now crosses the creek. This is a great trail that takes about an hour and is worth the work to see these natural wonders.
