We turned on to the gravel road but soon realized that was not the best decision for our small rental car. The gravel road had so many pits and dips in it that you had to drive about 5 mph with your car shaking up...More

Although the dirt road was described as "normally passable in a sedan," the drive was excruciating - due to the numerous dips, rocks and potholes. After that, and a long walk uphill, the Natural Bridge was a disappointment. There are many more beautiful (and accessible)...More

A mile and a half bumpy dirt road and a dusty one mile dirt trail but worth the challenge. Fabulous natural bridge.

If you have the time while visiting Death Valley, this is a quick hike through the canyon to see the natural bridge. Be sure to go all the way through to the other side to see the cracks. Makes you wonder how much longer it...More

The walk may be a bit long for some so check that out. Trail is pretty flat and smooth. The walls are almost as interesting as the Bridge when you get there. We had perfect conditions, but I imagine it is hot and still at...More

It was hot and we were tired, but we wanted to see the Natural Bridge so we made the side trip and we were glad we did. The drive up to the parking lot is terrible! We had a mid-size SUV and the washboard and...More

I had a rented SUV that I took up to the parking lot. It was a very bumpy ride, but we made it fine. I did see a car, 2 Jeeps and a RV turn around because of how bad the road was. Once you...More
