Quick hit: There are multiple options on this very nice trail. The trail begins when you pass interpretive signs and cross a bridge, following the pavement. You’ll soon reach an overlook for Natural Bridge itself. Keep going on the trail to a junction where you can either continue for six miles along the Upper Rogue Trail or turn right and view a beautiful section of the river with a footbridge. You can cross the footbridge and head back to your car with this option, following what’s called “Kings Canyon Trail” though Natural Bridge Campground.
Directions: Follow Highway 62 toward Crater Lake. Once you past the town of Prospect, look left just before mile marker 55 for a sign indicating “Natural Bridge Campground.” The trail starts at the end of the parking lot near interpretive signs. It follows pavement for about .3 miles
