Rainbow Bridge National Monument
September 15, 2013
CLOSED -- Rainbow Bridge National Monument is closed indefinitely due to a trail washout after heavy rains fell in the area during the summer. The damage includes a complete loss of approximately 150 feet of trail between the dock and the first shade structure, with a 21 foot drop-off into Bridge Creek. Debris has collected at the mouth of the creek and needs to be removed from the dock area. Crews have assessed the damage, and plans are underway to develop a temporary trail until a more permanent trail can be constructed.
