The Gap and Natural Bridge, Albany

4.7
#1 of 28 in Parks in Albany
Standing atop The Gap and Natural Bridge is a humbling experience: The rocks are the same as those found in Antarctica, meaning that you are standing at the former juncture of two continents. It is an easy stroll on the 300 m (980 ft) flat path from the parking area to watch the waves, rock formations, and rugged coastline from the sheer cliff. Bring a waterproof jacket if windy or rainy. Keep an eye out for whales, which you can often see from the cliffs, especially during winter.
