The iconic bridge, chiseled from Navajo sandstone, was once one of America’s most remote natural wonders, reached only by a multi-day hike or horseback ride down twisting canyons from Navajo Mountain.

For extremely well-prepared and thoughtful adventurers who want an unforgettable journey, there are two rugged trails that trek through squiggly canyons, and some of the wildest and least accessible country left in the lower 48 of the United States.
Escape the city and experience Utah the way settlers of yesteryear did — on horseback. Away from modern highways and busy city streets, you can breathe fresh air on trails through the forest, up mountains, and through the canyons surrounding Salt Lake City, along the metropolitan Wasatch Front.
