Eureka Springs, Arkansas: Pivot Rock and Natural Bridge

The rock doesn't really pivot and the natural bridge is not very big. But they're both in the same spot, so you get two earth wonders for the price of one, if you don't mind paying to see natural wonders.

Pivot Rock and Natural Bridge

They are closed right now.

[Melanie, 04/28/2022]

The road to Pivot Rock and Natural Bridge is sometimes closed because of bad weather, and apparently also because of pigs. Arkansas is famous for its wild and dangerous razorback hogs.

Pivot Rock and Natural Bridge

Great little stop! It's quick and easy to do the hike; it's pretty too. The gift shop is fun!

Pivot Rock and Natural Bridge

We drove out there, but were very disappointed to learn that we had to pay $4.50 a person to view the rock and bridge, so we passed. We saw many others pass it up as well.

MUD street

There are TWO sites that were featured in Ripley's Believe it or not: The Basin Park Hotel, which has all eight stories ( or so I forget how many) with a direct exit to ground level from every floor! Then there is little known Pivot Rock and Natural Bridge. The largest freestanding rock formation which has a base circumference of only about 10 inches, and the top measuring around 10 feet across! We have a Live Steam locomotive here in the original train depot from the 1880's, the court house, which along with many businesses on main street, you must enter through the second floor, because the first floor of these buildings are underground! The street "MAIN" used to be called MUD street, for a reason! One year there was a great torrential rain that brought TONS of mud down from the hills and they just never dug it out!

We elected a dead mayor, one of only three towns in america to do that! One of our mayors posed (supposedly) nude for one of the state-wide papers! We have no two parallelly intersecting streets either!
