The Natural Bridge Loop is a scenic trail with a hiking option located just northeast of Buena Vista. The trail snakes back and forth over small ridges and through steep gullies before reaching the Natural Bridge rock formation. While an impressive photo opportunity from the road, the optional .75 mile hike to the bridge allows for an up close look and an amazing view of the Arkansas River Valley below. The return trip is equally as impressive with panoramic views of the 14,000′ Collegiate Peaks as the backdrop. Bring your hiking gear and some water if you plan to hike to the bridge as it’s a steep non-maintained trail up the mountainside.
