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

Wonderful 7 1/2 hour round trip tour on Lake Powell out to the bridge from Wahweap Marina The captain and guide on our boat were very knowledgeable and fun. There is a mile hike out to Rainbow Bridge but you can get all the up to it. It is amazingly big

I can't believe they let houseboats enter and park at the entrance to rainbow bridge. I do NOT recommend inexperienced drivers make the trip in their houseboats as we saw two different boats collide with other smaller boats that were parked and heard a few very scary parking stories on our walk to the bridge. BRING WATER, you will need... More

It was our first time on Lake Powell and we didn't realize how tricky it is to navigate back to Rainbow Bridge. We expected it to be well marked along the way but it's not. Best advise is to play connect the dots with the buoys and get out quick if a monsoon approaches. Also, keep your eye out for... More

Definitely worth the time it takes to get there, I would make sure you have a good pair of walking shoes as it is 1 mile hike to the Bridge. Park rangers there to answer any questions you may have.

We took a boat tour out to the bridge. The lake levels are very low now, so when we got to the dock for the bridge it was over a mile walk to the actual bridge on a very hot day. By the time we got to the bridge and took a few pictures is was time to start the... More

This was a last minute decision for me, and I'm very glad that I did it (even in the heat of July!). The only way to get there, aside from a strenuous day long hike is by water. So I took a 5 hour tour from Lake Powell and spent an amazing afternoon on the water with an approximately 90... More
