Natural Wonder, Natural Beauty, above ground and below. Carved by the fingers of nature, its immensity is startling; the majesty, striking… The Natural Bridge, nature’s cathedral, soars high over Cedar Creek. The awe-struck Jefferson purchased it from the King of England in 1774. Elevate your senses as you walk the path of patriots, the Cedar Creek Nature Trail, beyond the Bridge.
