Rainbow Bridge National Monument, Page

4.8
#6 of 11 in Nature in Page
One of the world's largest natural bridges, Rainbow Bridge National Monument spans 71 m (234 ft) in the isolated foothills of Navajo Mountain. Though known for centuries by Native Americans who held the bridge scared, and sighted by trappers, prospectors, and cowboys in the 1800s, the existence of this massive sandstone bridge was not made public knowledge until 1909. To reach it, take a boat trip on Lake Powell, followed by a 1.6 km (1 mi) hike from the dock that crosses rugged terrain. Both the bridge and the trail are on Navajo tribal lands, and the National Park Service asks visitors to be respectful of this. It is not illegal to approach or walk under the arch, but the Park Service requests that you stay in the viewing area.

  • Everything about this was awe-inspiring! About a mile hike reach way, the views were incredible just getting to the bridge. Easy enough for younger kids to make. The boating on the way in was amazing as well. The trail is well maintained and has a sitting area with shade perfect for pictures and the trail goes a little further for close up pictures. The only sad thing is that currently the water is so low that the hike is longer than normal.
  • Amazing. Impossible to describe the enormity of this place. Just absolutely other worldly. Once in a lifetime must see and the adventure of getting here all the way from Florida are memories for a lifetime! Aramark is so completely top notch in every way. The staffs, the boats, equipment, the staff again and again make this one of the best trips we've all ever been on. Can't say enough about Aramark and the staff.
