Rainbow Bridge National Monument UtahRainbow Bridge is the world's largest natural bridge. Carved from a fin of red Navajo sandstone, the bridge is 290 feet tall and 270 feet across - higher than the United States Capitol Building, and nearly as long as a football field! The span of Rainbow Bridge has undoubtedly inspired people throughout time--from the neighboring American Indian tribes who consider Rainbow Bridge sacred, to the 300,000 people from around the world who visit Rainbow Bridge National Monument each year.

Rainbow Bridge is considered sacred in Navajo culture as a symbol of deities responsible for creating clouds, rainbows and rain - the essence of life in the desert. Rising up at Forbidding Canyon at Lake Powell, the bridge can be reached by boat cruises offered daily from Halls Crossing, Bullfrog or Wahweap Marinas. Rainbow Bridge can also be reached by foot or by horseback from the Navajo Nation and requires a permit.

Please visit Rainbow Bridge National Monument in a spirit that honors and respects the cultures to whom it is sacred.
