More Information

A nearly century-long tradition continues as the Natural Bridge is bathed in light the last Saturday night of every month, April through October. Experience the 200-foot-tall arch as it is lit from above and below by dozens of lights, with the only sound being the murmuring of Cedar Creek running below. A tribute to the first light program at the Bridge conducted in 1927, come see for yourself the sight that has drawn people out to the park at night for over 97 years, time and time again.

The visitor center and the trail will be open until 9 p.m., with light snacks for sale. The trail beyond the Natural Bridge will be closed. For any questions, please call the visitor center at (540) 291-1326.
