A karst window at Natural Bridge of St. Marks River. Spring rises from the depth of some 9 m. The winding lake – a chasm in limestone cliffs – is some 410 m long and at its end the water goes into the underground again.
Some 330 m west from it is the sink of St Marks River, where it dives under the ground to reemerge some 950 m further south as St Marks River Rise. Also, the water, that is seen in the Natural Bridge Spring, goes towards the St Marks River Rise. Near the sink is also historic Natural Bridge Battlefield – a site of an important American Civil War battle.
