The recording of this trail is very incorrect and the endpoint is nowhere near the Onyx Bridge. The directions from the NPS flyer as well as the info from the Painted Desert Inn volunteer helped us get there.

Unfortunately my recording got lost as this is my first time using the app.

The hike is approx 2 miles each way, and only the first part is quite steep.

This is our oldest sons favorite hike. The marker here is not even close and the map that we got from the NPS had an incorrect waypoint as well. The bad directions and the setting of the sun made for an incredible family adventure. We'll try to return and get a proper recording on this one.

Fun to locate using navigational skills as the trail runs out, stopped here for a bit on our way to the wilderness area for an overnight camp.

Not the trail that takes you to Onyx Bridge. The rim trail is okay though, not the best views of the park though.

The trail is a straight forward walk back to a petrified log that the soil has eroded out from under it. Not spectacular. The fun is using your navigation skills to find it by following a topographical map to pin point it. Overall a nice walk through the corner of the desert. Also it contains the remnant of a pioneer rock bridge over a gully.
