Natural Bridge Canyon | Death Valley National Park, California

Natural Bridge Canyon in Death Valley National Park, California, contains one of the most massive and spectacular natural bridges I have seen. The entire area was once a huge alluvial fan of composite rock washed down from the Black Mountains above. Over time the fan hardened, and subsequent floods cut through the fan creating a fairly narrow canyon with high sheer vertical wall borders towering up from 40 to 100ft or more on either side. About a mile up the canyon from the parking area at the canyon’s entrance there is a massive natural bridge formed when water tunneled through the composite rock. Route details: Approx. 4 Miles RT
