The pay-off of a private trail that follows an old road through the forest the bridge has been attracting a small group of visitors for decades, but never in large numbers.

Weathered naturally from the sandstone strata, the bridge was used as a vehicular bridge by wagons and early automobiles that ascended at disused road from Left Hand, the nearest large community.

Today, a small parking area and a gated trail welcome visitors on Natural Bridge Road.
