An easy walk to Rainbow Bridge from the boat docks. Either dock your own vessel here or use the shuttle boat from Wahweap Marina.

What an unique experience! Out that way grab a boat and go, it's a must! The day after our wedding we celebrated with our wedding party and this was the goal to reach from there it was just enjoying the water. Having restrooms and piers made it easier to get to. Only complaint is people were just hanging out on their boats and not leaving to make room for more people. Boats on both sides were there before and after our hike and never got off their boat and there was a line of boats waiting.

Definitely one of the coolest places I have been and totally worth going. It has a spiritual feel. It’s an easy trail.

Very easy hike from the boat dock. we spent the past few days on a houseboat on Lake Powell do this was a must stop. Come early in the morning to avoid the tour boat crowds.

The arch is spectacular, but we used a group charter to get there and it was a little crowded for my tastes. The trail is good and a very easy hike.

Beautiful short hike to a pretty spectacular geological formation. Very hot, as is expected for this area in summer, but was manageable with a lot of water, sunscreen, and hat.

Excellent short hike. Rainbow Bridge itself is one of the most beautiful natural arches in the USA. I prefer this one over the ones in the Moab area.
