Lace Falls is located at the Natural Bridge of Virginia, the state’s famous attraction that claims to be one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The incredible limestone formation, which is 215 feet high and 90 feet across, definitely upstages this 50-foot waterfall. A brochure states that the bridge “once was the summit of a large waterfall. During the 100 million years Cedar Creek flowed, there were also subterranean passageways in the softer stone under the existing arch, which eventually washed away, leaving the harder rock of the structure you see now.”
