Absolutely breathtaking in person. Very beautiful, and definitely worth the trip. I am only giving it 4/5 because the accessibility is not ideal. The 2 ways of seeing it (boat and plane) either burn up your day or your wallet respectively.

The boat ride is a few hours but the scenery is worth it. Once there it's just a little hike to Rainbow Bridge and you can not recreate the feeling of actually being there just looking at pictures of the bridge.

My family and I took the boat ride from Lake Powell Resort. It's about a two hour journey each way. The tour permits 1.5 hours to see the bridge, but it's only about a 20 minute walk and it's a fairly easy walk. That allows plenty of time to enjoy the bridge. There was a park ranger there when we... More

Its about a 1.25 mile walk to see the bridge and worth it. The walk is easy as my daughter did it with flip flops. If you go to Lake Powell you have to rent a boat and head out to the bridge

Unless you have (or rent) your own boat, this place can only be reached by boat tours available from the park's concessioner, Aramark. The tour lasts 5.5-6 hours round trip (longer in the summer due to low water level), including a 1.5 hour stop at the monument. Two tours a day are offered: 7:30 and 12:30. $125 per person, AAA...

Came out here with a boat tour from Lake Powell Marina. The Bridge itself is impressive and the canyon that it is in beautiful. I also really enjoyed hearing the story of the canyon itself, its religious significance, and the Navajo creation story. The hike from where boat moors depends in length on the water level, but is not very... More

This monument is huge and awe inspiring. We kayaked here from Oak Canyon (it took two hours, one way. We also kayaked the nearby Secret Canyon--excellent.) The hike from the boat dock to the monument is fairly easy. A ranger was back by Rainbow Bridge. He answered questions, and had an impressive scrapbook of information with him. There was also...

Rainbow bridge is a unique natural formation that amazed us even after we visited Arches NP. We took a boat tour to get there. The hike of about 1 mi is not that difficult but mostly not in the shade and that what makes it a little bit tough for some people. 2 rangers at the Bridge were happy to... More

We decided to visit Rainbow Bridge while we were in Page AZ. Coming around the corner and seeing the Bridge for the first time was AMAZING. I was surprised at the size of the arch. We made reservations online to take the cruise to the Bridge which takes off from Lake Powell resort which is only about 15mins from Page... More

We took the 6 hour boat trip on Lake Powell – with a long hike to Rainbow Bridge. The view was memorable and the long hike after baking in the sun in July was hard, but worth it. Take plenty of water on the hike, if you go in the summer (the boat companies provide chilled water when they dock).... More
