Second stop: Kachina Bridge. There’s another long trail which leads down to the bottom of the canyon, but I chose to skip it.
Owachomo Bridge probably the most impressive bridge here, and it’s also the easiest to reach. A short trail takes you directly under the bridge.
Underneath Owachomo Bridge.
Owachomo Bridge is the lowest of the three bridges here (106 ft.) and has the shortest span (180 ft.). The span is also the narrowest (27 ft.), and thinnest (9 ft.).
After leaving Natural Bridges National Monument, you may be in the mood to climb a trail, while sitting comfortably in your car. Make a left turn (when heading out of the park) onto CR 228, the road to Bear’s Ears.
This is the higher of the two ears… topping off at 9,058 feet.
Heading back down from Bear’s Ears, you’ll see a great view of the Grand Gulch Plateau.
