Located about 40 miles north of Madison, Natural Bridge State Park is home to one of the state’s most fascinating geological features. The natural bridge spans about 35 feet across and nearby, visitors can even see a 11,000 year old rock shelter created by Native Americans.

The Natural Bridge was left as a result of the Last Ice Age. Nearby, the rock shelter was used by Native Americans during the glacial melt after the Ice Age. It still stands a reminder to the bridges past.

While the bridge itself spans 35 feet wide, it also towers 25 feet high. This is an arch made of sandstone which has formed due to the weather of time including wind, rain and glacial melting.
