The Natural Bridge of Death Valley National Park in California
Our timing to visit Natural bridge in Death Valley National Park was just right. It was sunny but not hot, breezy but not cold. The trail up to the bridge was not crowded, in fact there were only a couple ahead of us and then we met a couple from Fairbanks Alaska on their way back to the parking lot, it was so cool meeting them.
The hike to the bridge was great, a slight incline but on a wide gravel road. The walk to the Natural Bridge is only 0.3 of a mile (about a 10 minute walk) and just few more steps past the bridge is the Dry Waterfall. My 8 year old son had a hard time getting to the dry waterfall but he made it. On our way back to the parking lot was an easy walk downhill and the views are beautiful looking over the valleys, the mountains, and the salt flats.
Getting from Badwater Rd to the Natural Bridge is about 1.5 miles of gravel road. The parking lot is okay with restroom and information sign. Natural Bridge was our 4th stop
on our journey to Death Valley National Park. Please watch our videos below...way way down below.
