Natural Bridge Hiking

image (2)While the historic Cedar Creek Trail is our most accessible trail, we are currently developing a trail system for seasoned hikers or other visitors that wish to explore the more remote parts of the property.

Our newest trail is the Monacan Trail, named after the Native Americans that occupied some of the western portions of Virginia. This moderately strenuous 3.5-mile loop is accessible from the back of the hotel near the water tower (follow the orange markers), and winds the hills and ridges above Cedar Creek, passing several creeks and wetlands and giving great views of Short Hills and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Some of our trails may be muddy or wet, and pass through unshaded areas, so waterproof boots and sunscreen are recommended. Keep some bug spray handy, too!
