Nice Hike

This is a relatively easy hike from the government boat dock. Enjoy the neat views. When we visited, they had rangers on site. There are floating bathrooms at the boat dock.

My husband and I took the Lake Powell boat ride to get to Rainbow Bridge. To get to the bridge itself requires a short hike on an easy trail. The bridge is beautiful and worth every effort to get to. The boat ride with Lake Powell Boat tours was quite surprising. The ride was smooth and long and very entertaining.... More

Visited last week (Mid-September) and all the summer crowds were gone. It was early evening. There were a few people on the trail coming back as we hiked up. On the way back, we had the entire place to ourselves. A beautiful and peaceful place. The trail that was washed out has been shored up and ready for the next... More

We visited this attraction via a boat tour from Waheap Marina on Like Powell. The boat and her captain were great and the scenery was wonderful. The hike to Rainbow Bridge was about a mile each way. The bridge is magnificient and well worth the time and expense to visit it. There were NPS Rangers at the base of the... More

We had a houseboat for a few days on Lake Powell from Antelope Point. We found most of the scenery to be repetitive but this spot was worth the trip to the other side of the lake! We docked to make the hike in the mid-day heat. The hike was not too hard - about 2.5 miles in all. Bring... More

We did a five-day houseboat vacation out of Wahweap. We beached in Oak Canyon just north of the Rainbow Bridge and took the powerboat we were towing down the lake to the canyon entrance to the arch. The boat ride was beautiful first thing in the morning. It was an easy hike for our kids, ages 16 down to 7.... More

I visited rainbow Bridge twice some years ago. With a rent motor boat we came nearby to the bridge. I will never forget the exciting view. And the vallies on the way there. Lately, I went to Page only to see the bridge again. But the water level was extremely low, and would have asked for a tiring walk. I... More

A must-see attraction at Lake Powell. With current water levels, the monument is about a mile hike on a sandy trail. Flip-flops are okay, shoes or strapped-heel sandals are better. Read the signs to understand the history of Rainbow Bridge. If you are traveling by small boat (which most people do), it is best to go in the early morning... More
