Description

The Hickman Natural Bridge is a wonderful hike, suitable for the whole family even in the middle of the Summer. Nestled within Capitol Reef, a free park to enter, this one-mile, well-marked trail takes you to a beautiful natural arch at its end. My friend and I hiked it in 102 degree heat, and as long as we stayed hydrated, it was delightful. I found it to be a nice hike in spite of my bad knees, and would recommend it to those who are looking for a short, rewarding hike.

Short Run: Trailhead is at the parking lot. The trail is about one mile long.
