This little gem in the middle of nowhere was the last stop of our trip.


Moki Dugway

Moki Dugway is a gravel road switchbacking up a steep escarpment of Cedar Mesa, over 1,000 ft up, just north of Valley of Gods and south of Natural Bridges. It is now a part of Utah State Route 261, but was originally built by a mining company.

Sipapu Bridge

This bridge is reached on a 0.6 mile trail that descends 500ft to the bottom of a canyon The descent is down several steep steps with great views of the canyon and the bridge most of the way. All the way at the bottom, there is dense vegetation, in contrast to the high desert scenery on the canyon rim, and the bridge towers overhead.

Owachomo Bridge

The smallest and thinnest of the big bridges in the park, but no less impressive, and arguably even most elegant, Owachomo Bridge is towering on the side of a small canyon. It is easily accessible from the road, giving no excuse not to see it.
