Contrary to the popular belief, Natural Bridge is one of several natural arches in Bryce Canyon and creates a beautiful scene at the viewpoint. This arch is sculpted from some red rocks of the Claron Formation which are known to be rich in iron oxide minerals and poses a stark contrast to the dark green of the Ponderosa forest that peeks through the arch from the canyon situated below.This window or arch is formed from a combination of processes. The first one is Frost wedging, then the expanding of cracks in rock as water turns to ice, then weakened the rock. Thus, Bryce Canyon's 'bridges' including this one, are spectacular examples of arches that, like the hoodoos, are constantly at risk of getting destructed as the forces of erosion continue to wear the rock away.

Natural Bridge Reviews & Ratings
One of many spectacular views encountered while on a hike! The hiking trails are well marked, the facilities here are numerous and relatively clean. The sound of the breezes completely give the feeling of being separated from the hustle of city life. Very much recommended!
Awsome experience, good hiking, bring plenty of water, proper footwear recommended, hats recommend. Sun is scorching hot. Has areas of shade for resting. Definitely do the peekaboo trail,.. a horse back ride is quite something.
Everything about Bryce canyon is amazing. When you go, I'd recommend the free shuttle bus. Hop on, hop off at any of the view areas. It's a lot better than driving and trying to find a parking spot.
One of nature's best views. Well worth the drive through the park. Beautiful vistas and view points located throughout the park. For the ease of driving, I suggest driving to the end of the park and stop at the view stops on the return to avoid left turns into the traffic which can be heavy.
Sunrise on one of the most beautiful and under rated places in the USA. Brice will forever be in my heart as a treasure. Better than the Grand Canyon because it is not touristy. Hike, camp and drive up to a peak. Go! Enjoy and see.
