This trail begins by going through a wooden jack fence and starts uphill. The trail continues uphill through great basin rye grass, mountain mahogany and sagebrush. The rock formation in the area area quite stunning. A serious of steps characterizes the steepest parts of the trail. As the trail ascends higher, the vegetation changes to Douglas fir forest which provides welcome shade over the upper parts of the trail. Nearing the top, the trail switches back and heads toward the upper platform where the arch can be seen. At this corner, a wooden bench provides a resting place.
Trail Begins: See map located in "Natural Bridge" brochure
