This natural rock arch was eroded in part by streams flowing under it during the wet season. Hence, its designation as a natural "bridge" as opposed to the wind, weather and water eroded Escalante Arch just upstream.
The Escalante Natural Bridge is reached by a relatively easy 2 mile (4 mile round-trip) hike from the man-made bridge over the Escalante on HWY 12, 14 miles east of the town of Escalante.
