  • It's a short walk from the road so no time lost to sneak a peek, but I was not impressed. I wish I had time to see the Agate House 
  • Surprising to see a stone bridge which was once a tree - recognisably so, too! Definitely worth a look see as you make your way through the Petrified Forest. 
  • Of course we made the stop here - where else can you see a large piece of petrified wood. A short hike down to this exciting view.

  • The Agate Bridge is a petrified log that had the earth washed out from underneath it. The log began to break down so a concrete support has been placed underneath, taking away some of the majesty of the original site. If coming in from the north entrance, this will be the first close-up view of the petrified wood that is found all across the southern end of the park. A paved 150' (45 m) walkway leads to the overlook for the bridge. There is a restroom at this site but no water. An interpretive sign provides more information about the Agate Bridge. The parking lot has spaces for buses and RVs.
  • They had to put some cement in so that it wouldn't fall, kind of lame honestly
  • This site is great but I wish the fossilized tree was left alone rather than being supported by the concrete...
