Hemlock Lodge and the restaurant at Natural Bridge State Resort Park will be closed Sunday Nov. 26, 2017 after lunch through Nov. 30 for electrical repairs. The lodge and restaurant are scheduled to re-open Friday, Dec. 1, at lunchtime. The park’s cottages and trails will remain open during this time.
Pets are not permitted on the Natural Bridge State Resort Park hiking trails – except for the Henson Arch Trail and Whittleton Trail. Most trails at Natural Bridge are within a dedicated Kentucky State Nature Preserve, and pets are not permitted as a part of the management guidelines. However, all trails are open to pets in the Red River Gorge area.

Sandstone Arches Restaurant
Natural Bridge State Resort Park is home to the great natural sandstone arch that stands like a sentinel over this mountain hideaway. Located in the midst of the Daniel Boone National Forest, near the Red River Gorge Geological Area, the arch spans 78 feet in length and 65 feet in height. Visitors will find this park a kaleidoscope of spectacular natural beauty with each passing season.
