Description

The Natural Bridge is a popular feature in the upper Lusk Creek area. It makes for great photos and is a nice spot to take a break and enjoy the views. I like to include this gem with Saltpeter Cave just around the bend for a nice upper Lusk run.

Short Run: Run in on either Trail #481 or Trail #481A. Both are fairly easy trails. Trail #481A is best accessed by car in the drier months as the road can get pretty bad.

Gem Type: Natural Arch
