Rainbow Bridge National Monument, Page

(4.7/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • There are already many years that I visited this beautiful "wonder of the world" - I think in the 80 years and most recently 2009. Who has ever seen them, will never forget it. Many comparable natural monument fade!

  • The only way to access the Rainbow Bridge is by boat or hiking. We went back and forth on whether to take the boat ride to the site because it is an all day excursion (lasts from 9a-3p) and a little p...  more »
  • A one of a kind site. Accessible by private or tour boat or hiking. Most people take a day each way if hiking. On the North side of Navajo Mountain. If your in the area it's a must see.  more »

  • A goal for boat renters coming up from Wahweap (50 miles of scenic canyon style boating) the Rainbow Bridge is a must stop. Be cautious as the boating becomes very narrow and no wake signs were missing as we were coming in the narrow but scenic canyon. Houseboats and tour boats still manage to get back to the dock for the short hike to the monument. We were there on an October Saturday and had to wait about 15 minutes for a place to dock. But the short 1 mile hike was worth it to see the monument. Restrooms are also available at the dock.
  • Hello. My granddaughter would love to see Rainbow Bridge but would prefer to hike to it instead of arriving on a boat and go on a tour. She is 17. Can ANYONE help us regarding finding a group that will also hike there or know how we can arrange for someone to assist us with our hike? Also, when we do hike this area, where do we start from and how long will it take for us to get to Rainbow Bridge from the starting point of the hike? We are arriving on Saturday, August 13, 2016. Your assistance is GREATLY appreciated!
  • Accessible only by water Rainbow Bridge is one of my favorite arches in southern Utah. If you can take a tour from wahweap marina, that's great, but the best way to see it is to kayak up and enjoy the moment without the crowds. There's also a dinosaur track near by so keep your peepers peeled.
  • The boat tour is fun, but I was fortunate enough to backpack in with a group. The only way you can see the other side of the monument. Incredible.
  • It is a magical and spiritual place and I'm not into all that stuff normally. If you decide to rent a boat and drive there yourself you better drive fast. It took us 3 hours to get there and 3 hours back. Plus plan on at least a 20 minute hike there and 20 back. But the payoff is immense. Plus make sure the navigator can read a map as the cliffs can be deceiving. The waves can are choppy especially in bad weather. Its hard work to get there but it was worth it.
