Sipapu Natural Bridge currently ranks #13 on the list of all known natural bridges and arches in the world. With a span of 268 feet and towering at 220 above the dry river bottom below, it is an impressive natural bridge to look at. Located in south-eastern Utah in Natural Bridges National Monument, you can see it along with two equally interesting bridges, Kachina and Owachomo, on one short visit. The trail to the bottom is just .6 miles (1 km) and offers lots of good looks at the bridge.
Below are some pictures from our visit. We were the only ones in the park at the time. Sipapu is little visited compared to the more popular arches like Delicate arch or Landscape arch. You can look at a list of all the natural bridges and arches I’ve visited, along with useful descriptions and advice, here.
