An incredible trail with sandstone bridges and cliffs and a beautiful view of the valley.

Family Friendly This is a short hike with the hardest part right at the beginning. After the switchbacks the trail is easy and the views are fun for children.

Description

This trail is very well marked, so don't worry about losing your way. The trail follows the river for the first couple hundred yards and then begins the majority of the ascent in switchbacks. At the top of the cliff, proceed along the trail until you come to a fork. This is the loop that goes to Hickman Natural Bridge and back, and my favorite way to hike this loop is by going to the right first.

The trail is hard to follow shortly after the fork, but as the bridge is visible just after the fork, it should be easy to find the trail again after some traversing over some sandstone. Hickman Natural Bridge is over the trail at the far edge of the loop. Continuing along the loop, the trail comes to the edge of the shear cliffs of the valley, providing some incredible views. The trail then joins up at the fork for a quick descent back on the first part of the trail.
