To get there from Payson, take the Beeline Hwy to N. 87, after the circles, it is about 8 miles and the turn off is on your left, follow the signs.

Easy hike down under the tunnel. Some of the rocks at the bottom are slippery. Took little two and they did alright.

I am not a seasoned hiker & this was a fairly easy hike. Wear shoes that grip well, so small rocks at beginning of trail going down won't cause you to slide. Great photo opportunities & a good calorie burn on the hike back up. Bring water to drink & to squirt yourself down with on sunny days.

Amazing inside the bridge! The marsh on top makes it rain inside. A little steep on the way back up but plenty of resting points and well worth the trip.
