The trail from the boat stop to Rainbow Bridge is a great walk through the canyon but the real beauty is the canyons that the boat travels into where the trail starts. The sand stone cliff sitting in the water and the various colorful butte's and mesa's as you travel Lake Powell are probably some of the most spectacular scenery... More

Take the walk to Rainbow Bridge and enjoy the view at the bridge. Great spot for photos! There's a small covered area right at the end of the main trail (or you can go a little further to get right to the bridge) which is nice for a rest and cold drinks. It's not totally flat, but it's pretty easy... More

Short walk to Rainbow Bridge National Monument from boat marina. Hot mid day. Bring water. Worth the trip.

You have to dock your boat and walk down a trail to get there. Parts of the trail are unpaved. Make sure you take a bottle of water in the summer months. It was really hot when we got there or take a quick dip off the side of your boat before you walk the trail. I'm 57 and have... More

We arrived by watercraft at the dock. It is a beautiful boat ride to get here. There are floating bathrooms on the dock. The trail is well maintained to Rainbow Bridge.

The trail to Rainbow Bridge is beautiful. It's only a mile to the actual bridge an is relatively flat. Some mild hills, but nothing too strenuous unless you go midday when it's unbearably hot. Go first thing in the morning, bring plenty of water, and decent walking shoes. Flip Flops won't cut it, a good pair of water shoes for... More

We came during a drought when the trail from the lake is at its longest. Enter at buoy #49 and you will find a nice dock to tie up to. Avoid flip flops - although I unfortunately proved that you can do it. One thing that was unsettling. You are in a narrow canyon with very tall walls and you... More

The trail to Rainbow Bridge is always in good shape all year long. Need to bring your own water! You will sweat some in the sun while on the relatively gradual inclined trail. Good walking shoes will make the trip easier. Flip flops will make it there, but you will fight them all the way along the path there.
