Description [Suggest Changes]

This trail leads from the top of Natural Bridge to the Natural Bridge overlook and Lovers Leap. It is almost 100% singletrack and while mostly flat, it has its share of roots to trip you up if you are not careful. There is a great view of Natural Bridge from the bridge overlook that gives you a perspective of the route you just came up. Once you reach the end of the trail, Lovers Leap offers a splendid panorama over the valley covering KY 11. If you are there during climbing season, you can see a kaleidoscope of colors from the tents at Miguels!

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Few animals to speak of but the flora is outstanding, several types of ferns including the Christmas fern, plenty of the magnificent eastern hemlock, and hardwood species that provide for excellent fall viewing.
