Description

At 8.2 miles long, this is one of the longest and best hikes in Natural Bridges National Monument.

This route drops into the bottom of White Canyon near Sipapu Bridge and then winds its way south along the canyon bottom. On this hike, you'll visit three majestic natural bridges - Sipapu, Kachina, and Owachomo.

Along the way, you'll also spot incredible rock art panels and ancestral Puebloan ruins.

After climbing out of the canyon, the trail cuts cross-country through the arid high-desert landscape to return to the trailhead from whence you began. At times, the navigation on this trail is difficult due to its primitive nature and the lack of signage.
