Rainbow Bridge to Grand Canyon
Rainbow Bride is located near the shores of Lake Powell in Southern Utah. Although Rainbow Bridge is a separate National Monument, it is run by Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, which also manages Lake Powell. This monument was of course created to protect Rainbow Bridge, the largest natural bridge in the world. The massive size and beautiful colors of this formation make it one of the most popular sites in canyon country. Over 90,000 visitors will make their way to Rainbow Bridge each year. If you plan on taking a boat to the bridge, Mid-May to Mid-September is your best bet. People wanting to backpack to the Rainbow Bridge will find the best weather in the late spring and fall seasons. Rainbow Bridge is also a sacred site to locative native people who have inhabited this area for thousands of years. Read the guide below to learn more.
