  • You cannot deny is marred because the bridge point the silicified trees to topple trees is not collapsed as concrete is reinforced.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Petrified Forest National Park

Since most visitors drive through Petrified Forest National Park, you won't find any developed accommodations inside the park. If you're not prepared to camp in the backcountry, pitch a tent at one of the campgrounds near the highway or bunk down in one of the travelers' motels in Holbrook, which lies about 32 km (20 mi) west of the park.
