The 78-foot long and 65-foot high Natural Bridge is the focal point and is believed to be at least one million years old. There are a few trails to view Natural Bridge, from the easy 3/4-mile Original Trail with an elevation gain of 400 feet, to the Balanced Rock Trail (part of the Sheltowee Trace Trail) which is also 3/4-mile, but is very steep and comprises over 600 stairs! Or take the easy way up. The Sky Lift is a chairlift that rewards with exceptional views and leaves you within an easy walk to the top of Natural Bridge. There is fee charged. Along with many other rock features and trails, this park has an impressive array of amenities that make this a great overnight base. Stay in Hemlock Lodge, a cottage rental, or camp in Whittleton or Middle Fork Campground. Enjoy fishing for bass, sunfish, rainbow trout and channel catfish in Mill Creek Lake, or take advantage of on-site canoe and kayak rentals and a swimming pool which is included if you stay at the Lodge or cottages, or a small fee charged if you just want to swim for the day. There is no fee to enter Kentucky State Parks.
