Natural Bridge State Monument is located in the Main Boulder River Valley 25 miles south of the town of Big Timber. The area is named for a limestone arch that once spanned the Boulder River. The 25-foot natural arch collapsed in July 1 988. Natural Bridge Falls, a 1 05-foot cataract on the river, surges through the Madison limestone chasm. The waterfall changes throughout the seasons. In the early spring, the surging cataract drops more than 1 00 feet over the limestone precipice in the river-carved gorge. In late spring, two smaller waterfalls are visible under the main falls. During the summer, the water disappears into a riverbed hole and tumbles out of the lower caverns at the base of the waterfall, revealing the bedrock.
