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

We arrived late in the evening so it had few visitors and was very quiet. Hiked around a bit. Read the history of it

We visited by houseboat in July. We left from bullfrog and made it there in 2 days but we did stop a few time. The water was really down so after you tie up at the dock it is a good mile walk. Once you get there though it is worth it! We took great pictures and talked with the... More

Pull in by boat. Tie up, swim across, climb the trail and there's an awesome cliff to jump from. A memory that won't fade.

You have to get here by boat, and we left from Bullfrog Marina and made several stops along the way. There's a dock to tie-up here, but when we arrived, it was pretty crowded, so we had to work pretty hard to find a space. There's a nice (for its location) restroom just off the dock. It's a bit over... More

It takes around two hrs by ship/boat from lake Powell resort. After getting down, we walked almost 2KM to reach rambow bridge. We went there in June and weather was hot and humid.Walking on sand up to some distance was really tough. We reached there after 20 to 30 minutes of walk and captured some memorable snapshots with family.

Rainbow Bridge is not that readily accessible. By that, I mean you do not just drive up and jump out of your car to see it. You can either indulge yourself in a long hike across Navajo land (permit required) or, as we did, hire a boat for the day from Page, Arizona, and head across Lake Powell. It is... More
