Rainbow Bridge National Monument

Rainbow Bridge National Monument Review

A boat tour to the monument is a great way to see the enormity of the lake and its incredible, rugged beauty. This 290-foot red-sandstone arch is the world's largest natural bridge, and can be reached by boat or strenuous hike. The lake level is down due to the prolonged drought throughout the region, so expect a 1.5-mile hike from the boat dock to the monument. The bridge can also be viewed by air. To the Navajos this is a sacred area with deep religious and spiritual significance, so outsiders are asked not to hike underneath the arch itself.
