Natural Bridge Falls is a mandatory stop if you’re recreating in the Boulder River area south of Big Timber. There are two separate trails to access the falls and both are short and worthwhile. More experienced hikers can reach a better view of Natural Bridge Falls along the East Rim Trail. Hikers of all ability levels can travel the wheelchair-accessible path that takes you along the west side of the river to several overlooks. The terrain of the river valley consists of open scrub forest with grassy clearings full of wildflowers. The area is great for watching a variety of neo-tropical, migratory birds such as the mountain bluebird, violet-green swallow, and chipping sparrow.
