Sipapu Bridge in Natural Bridges National monument is the second largest natural bridge in the world. The trail to the bottom is steep and the park service has put in a staircase and 3 ladders to help you get down to the bottom. The steeper portion of the trail is on slick rock so the grip is excellent. Once you get down to the bottom you can go directly underneath of the arch in the Gambel oak forest. Time to the bottom depends on fitness and ability on the steep rock. It shouldn’t take more than an hour round trip.

From the parking lot head to the first view point. Once you are done admiring the Sipapu Bridge, pick up the trail and start your decent downwards. In a little while you will be at a ladder, make your way down and soon you will be on a huge ledge, if you walk to the end of the ledge you will get a great view of the bridge. Go back and pick up the trail and continue to head downwards. You will now come across the slick rock, the hand rails and ladders. Take your time and once you get off the rock, make your way underneath of the bridge. When done looking around head back up.
