I've always been a fan of natural bridges and natural arches which comes with my affinity for the Southwestern US states. I wasn't expecting to find a natural bridge in this part of the country. As I was driving around the Wisconsin Driftless Area, I spotted this on the map and was intrigued. How I had missed it on previous trips was beyond me.
Here's a hiking map and the area-
This is really more of a walk than a hike but that doesn't make it any less adventurous. The walk to the bridge can be done in about 15 minutes from the parking lot and involves just a little elevation gain. Make sure you bank right at both intersections. The trails aren't very well marked though it would be difficult to get lost. The bridge itself is both imposing and impressive-
Nice to get a little taste of the Southwest in this part of the country. The real draw of the area is Devil's Lake, of course, but seeing as this is just 15 minutes away from the south entrance, it would be a shame to miss this natural gem.
