Great Place To Visit
May 2021
This place is far most most places. If nearby it's worth a visit. Three nice natural bridges to see. Not to long of a hike to get to each one or you can just take the short walk to the lookout and see them. You will not see too many people here.

Rainbow Bridge is not where TripAdvisor says it is.

Looked up things to do in Page, AZ. Saw the Rainbow Bridge and we were so excited and followed TripAdvisor’s map to a neighborhood with nothing there. Turns out it is about 25 miles away just so you know. We never made it ... :(

We made the long water run just so the kids could say they’ve been there. Hot,Hot,Hot!! Good thing dangling rope is close by with gas and ice cream.

Rainbow Bridge from Renegade Boat Rentals
Jul 2020
See my review of Renegade Boat Rentals.

I had decided to take my grandchildren on a trip and had always wanted to go to Rainbow Bridge so I started researching the best way to do it. In all we would have 13 people traveling and I knew I needed a boat that would hold up to 14 people. We found it at Renegade Boat Rentals. I'm glad we rented with them as the experience was well worth the money.
We headed out to Rainbow Bridge from the Wahweep Stateline Marina at about 8am. It took us about 2.5 hours to get to the turnout for Rainbow Bridge. Luckily, the boat had a great navigation system. We averaged about 25 miles per hour on the way out and had I been more familiar with the boat, I could have easily averaged 35 miles per hour.

There is no sign from the main lake to the Rainbow Bridge turnoff until after you make the turnoff so knowing where you are going is helpful. The ride through the narrow canyon to the Rainbow Bridge boat dock was spectacular. There were not as many signs as there were turns, but we made it to the dock and luckily it wasn't that crowded. Tying off at the dock was a little difficult because there were D rings on the dock instead of Cleats. The intent was to pass the line through a D ring and use the cleat on the boat but it took about 1/2 hour to figure that out.

The walk to Rainbow Bridge was about a mile up a slight grade on sandy but rocky ground. It was a nice little hike and the scenery was beautiful . The hike was well worth it. I was surprised at how many people weren't wearing masks. The return trip to the dock was pretty uneventful other than a group of about 35 people who decided to stand in the middle of the narrow trail and talk to each other without any consideration of people walking by. When we got back to the dock, it was completely full and there were several boats waiting to dock.

Beautiful Hike

Arrived by boat. Boat ride up the canyon was beautiful. The walk is easy, take about 10 min. Very interesting and worthwhile hike.

Second time here and took the family this time . Its a pretty good run on your boat and you can miss the turnoff if your not paying attention. Dandling rope is close by if you need to refuel.

Awesome, breathtaking

Took the boat tour and I can genuinely say every penny paid was worth it. The boat ride and views are unparalleled. The Bridge is breathtaking! Don’t miss this tour if you are coming to Page.

A little disappointing
Oct 2019 • Couples
Yes, Rainbow Bridge is spectacular!! Super glad we were able to see it!! We were told though that the boat tour was between 6&7 hours and we’d see several canyons on the ride. Instead we ended up on a jet boat, which was loud and fast. We were inside sitting for most of the trip and we’re allowed out on top for 10 minutes on the way there and back to see and photograph the same canyon. Total tour time was 4 1/2 hours. 3 hours in the boat.

Boat trip up a canyon
Oct 2019
The Rainbow bridge boat tour was worth every penny! We travelled up Lake Powell in a Jet boat 90 minutes to Hidden canyon where we got off for a very easy walk to see the rainbow bridge. The reflections on the water were amazing as you start the walk on long docks. The walk is about a mile, they say, but seemed much shorter, mostly level to the bridge, a small climb to take the trail around to the back.
Captain Teresa, and crewman Bishop had lots of information about the Glen Canyon area

A 20 minute walk
Oct 2019
Yep only a 20 minute walk but you have to come 5 hours from Halls Crossing or Page by houseboat. The arch is amazing. Quite large but you can't get under it anymore by water. The trail continues on after the arch into the back country. Take water even though the trail is pretty level and improved.
