Lexington has plenty of covered bridges to visit, and these are covered to protect the wood from the elements, but imagine a bridge made by the elements. Take a ride to see the limestone bridges in Natural Bridge State Park and the Red River Gorge area north of Lexington. These fascinating rock formations are breathtaking, and the area is popular for hiking.
