Owner description: The world's largest natural bridge, nearly as high as the Statue of Liberty, spans 275 feet across the water.

Although the weather was cloudy and cool on our three-hour trip to (and from) the point where we got off the boat to walk to Rainbow Bridge, it was sunny at Rainbow Bridge itself. I first saw this natural feature almost sixty years ago - in a geology text book - and I was glad to, eventually, see it for myself. Although the boat ride is long (and fairly expensive), it is well worth it to see the world's largest natural bridge.

This requires a 52 mile boat ride one way to get there but it's worth it. The scenery on the lake is incredible on the ride there and back. There is a little over a mile hike from the boat dock to Rainbow Bridge but it is not a hard hike.

My wife and I did the boat tour from Lake Powell Resort to the Rainbow Bridge. The boat trip alone was an experience not to be missed. excellent commentary on personal headphones all the way. Passing spectacular lake side scenery and seeing the towering bluffs and mesas. The final part down Rainbow Bridge Canyon is awesome as the sides of the canyon close in on the boat. We had a mile trek then to Rainbow Bridge (this varies depending on water levels, but is a fairly easy hike). Although we had seen pictures of the bridge the sheer size of it when you get there is breathtaking.
We could understand why the Navajo consider it to be a sacred site a shame one or two of our fellow travellers didn't treat it as such. Definitely a place to visit.

A long cruise to this (3-4 hours), but the boat was nice, and the crew was great, making a good effort to give the history and highpoints of the journey. The payoff of the arch was spectacular, with an enthusiastic park ranger at the base. It's about a half mile to mile hike to it, but recommended. Take a sandwich along; no food on the boat.

We took the 6-hour boat tour from Lake Powell Resort and it was a great way to see 100 miles of the lake and beautiful scenery. As you get further away from the resort, the colors change, the rock formations are incredible and we even saw a herd of mule deer walking on the beach.

The actual Rainbow Bridge Monument was incredible.
We had a temp of about 75f and crystal blue skies. Made for a great, easy 1.25 round trip walk to and from the bridge.

If you walk an average pace, you have time to eat a picnic lunch at the monument, so I'd suggest bringing lunch as they don't serve food on the boat.
