Eagle Point Trail takes you through the valley to a small natural bridge with views of creek and perhaps free ranging buffalo. Walk under the Eagle Point Trail where nature has created a natural bridge. Stop at the wooden bench and use the small trail to walk underneath and through the Natural Bridge.

This was the last leg of an overnight trip that started on the Canyon Rim Trail, had a stay at the North Prong campground, and then when up Haynes Ridge and down South Prong. Although pleasant, this trail was the least scenic of all.

Hot and Buggy. There was no bench with path to a bridge that the other reviews were talking about. Basically a 2 mile hike to a road then turn around and go back. 3/5 because the canyon is amazing in itself. Lots of horse flies. I prefer the northern hikes.

Very nice hike. Start at rim and walk 2 miles into canyon. Very pretty scenary. Going back is more uphill. Overall, a worthwhile hike. The natural bridge is more of a large hole in the rock, but nice pics

Nice hike in cooler temps of November. The bridge is underneath you when you get to the wood bench. A little path across the trail from the wooden bench will get you down to it.

Well marked. The natural bridge is by the bench. Tough one when 100 degrees

From the road this didn't look very interesting. That changed quickly and I really enjoyed this trail, its changes in elevation and the scenery. There is a beautiful patch of green in the valley which really stands out against the red Caprock.

There is no shade at all, so go on a cooler day. The trail is easy. I took the kids. We totally missed the Natural Bridge! I figured it washed away or something, but apparently I just didn't know where to look.

Fairly easy. Some up and down. No shade at all unless you go into the natural bridge. Nice formations and views! Cross over a couple of small creeks. Really muddy after a good rain.

Not a bad hike. Hard to find the natural bridge if you're not sure where to look for the offshoot trail.

Pretty easy trail for Caprock Canyons, be careful or you will miss the natural bridge it is close to the north end of the trail

Pleasant walk, simple natural bridge., one of the least to do in the park. You can hike from the north side to the natural bridge and it is only a short distance.
