Natural Bridge State Park 

 Discover the natural wonder of Wisconsin’s Natural Bridge State Park, home to a unique sandstone arch carved by wind and water. With hiking trails suitable for all ages and skill levels, this hidden gem offers breathtaking landscapes and stunning fall foliage, making it the perfect destination for families, couples, and solo travelers. Join us on a journey to explore the park’s trails and facilities in this blog post.


Wisconsin has so many state parks we are not even halfway to finish them, we just have to work on this bucket list.

We visited Natural Bridge State Park and took on the easy path with our toddler, which is a 0.8-mile round trip with an uphill climb to the top, rocks to climb, and explore on top, all amidst the colorful fall leaves. The natural bridge is just around the corner, and my daughter was able to hike at her own pace. I highly recommend this trail, it’s great for families and fun for toddlers too.

The parking lot offers great views, and it’s perfect for adults to stretch their legs. You can take two ways to hike here, attempt the 1.5-mile loop if you are up for a long hike without kids, or head straight to the bridge. The park has a huge parking lot, easy-to-find trailhead, and restrooms located next to the parking lot. It’s open year-round from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.

 How to get there?
