This is a privately owned natural bridge, located by the town of the same name in Winston county, AL. It formed between 150 and 200 million years ago. It is in a locally well-known natural site, and is billed, with unknown veracity, as the longest natural bridge east of the Rockies. This makes the bridge notable enough, I feel, to be listed. The bridge is 148' long, 60' high, and 10' wide, and can only be viewed from below rather than being walked across due to insurance concerns. There are other smaller natural arches in the park near the largest span.
