“Nice easy stroll to some amazing geology”
Reviewed 26 September 2012

This is not really a two mile hike, more like one mile to see the major amazing geological formation. You would also have a hard time making it into a one hour visit. It is a must see. If you do not want to do the complete stroll, you can walk just a few feet to see the major attraction. Do bring your camera. Also do drop a few bucks into the forest service donation box to help with the upkeep.

“A Natural Treasure”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

On the way to Crater Lake National Park, make sure to stop for an hour's walk at the Nature Bridge Loop. It's a lovely, forested park by the headwaters of the Rogue River. Natural volcanic activity has made some interesting features, like a lava bridge over the river with the water tunneled underneath. Very beautiful place. Overnight camping spots next to the river are available.
