“Take a few moments to stop off at Natural Bridge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

Natural Bridge is a well signposted obvious stop off point along the Badwater Road located up a gravel, unpaved road accessible to all vehicles. Parking is just off the main road in a small parking lot. Not nearly as impressive as any of the Arches in Arches National Park, still an interesting geological feature. From the trailhead Natural Bridge is an easy half mile walk up a slight incline to the arch. This feature is accessible to all abilities and ages, although wearing study shoes is advised due to loose rock and gravel. Go early to avoid the midday heat, although this canyon provides a welcome rest bite from the sun as for some of the day is in the shade. Natural Arch is a 15ft high arch, spanning 46m and was carved out by floodwaters running off the mountains. Do take an extra few minutes to pass under the archway and onwards to the dry waterfall cut into the rock face, this is the end of the trailhead. This is a quick stop, but a unique feature in Death Valley National Park.
