Ayres Natural Bridge is considered one of Wyoming's first tourist attractions. But for the Indians who first lived in this country, the natural bridge was a deadly place. A young brave had been struck by lightning and killed while hunting the canyon; thus began a legend that an evil spirit lived below the bridge.

When white settlers realized this, they used the bridge as a place to escape from Indian attacks.

Early-day mountain men lived in caves nearby, and Mormon settlers built cabins nearby in the 1850s.

This area is open April 1 through October 31.
