  • I love Agate. I love Bridges. Why would I not stop to see it? I really liked this, and it was one of my favorite photo stops. But please, do not sit on it!! Just take a picture standing in front of it...  more »
  • A fallen petrified tree has formed a bridge across a small canyon. This "bridge" is now supported by a rather crude concrete beam which rather detracts from the beauty but is probably necessary to pre...  more »
  • The natural log bridge looks like something that fell across a ravine yesterday, (if yesterday was a million or so years ago!) The old time rangers saw the likelihood of the thing collapsing and added...  more »

  • 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...
