  • Make a quick stop here to see a petrified log that at one time spanned a small canyon. Today it's held up with a concrete support.  more »
  • We can understand that the concrete is based on this natural bridge was built to avoid that it falls apart but magic isn't there anymore. A photo, just to remember, and nothing more. Fortunately, there's not much to walk to see.

  • This attraction should be a natural bridge on the banks of a stream, obtained from a petrified tree placed crosswise on the bed; Unfortunately this is a bridge "quite natural" in the sense that the trunk was supported underneath by a reinforced concrete beam in order to preserve intact stability. It is worth stopping.

  • 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...
