RECENT STORMS AT AYRES NATURAL BRIDGE RESULTED IN A NEED TO CLOSE THE PARK FOR CLEAN-UP. IT WILL NOT RE-OPEN UNTIL SPRING 2021.
Crafted by the hands of Mother Nature, Natural Bridge, located just south of the Oregon Trail, is one of only three natural bridges in the United States with water beneath. Considered one of Wyoming’s first tourist attractions, scenery seekers enjoy this breathtaking wonder that includes a picnic area, hiking paths, a sand volleyball court, fishing areas and horseshoe pits. Limited camping is available to recreational vehicles under 30 feet in length. No dogs are allowed in the park.
Natural Bridge is a great location to enjoy photography and a picnic lunch.
It is considered one of Wyoming’s first tourist attractions, drawing trail weary pioneers
seeking reprieve from rigors endured along the Oregon Trail.
LaPrele Creek flows beneath the rock formation, creating one of only three rock archways
in the nation that span water.
The angles associated with the natural rock archway will challenge even the most experienced photographer, but the rewards are breathtaking.
