This was a short stop. At one time could see why this was an attraction but time has worn away the tree and now it is supported by a man made structure. Does not take anytime to stop and see. Right next to the parking...More

This bridge is worth taking ten minutes to see. It is a petrified log that fell across a gorge making a bridge. It was really neat that next to it were deer tracks and mountain line tracks also.

Water creates, Water Finishes. This log bridge has stood for many a generation, however, at some point it will disappear. While it stands, it is a must see visit. Be careful, DO NOT WALK ON THE BRIDGE. Simply look and enjoy

“Water will have its way.” This is simply a petrified tree that is being held up by a concrete support built in 1917. Under it is a slow growing gulch that will eventually be too much even for the supports. This stop is easily accessible...More

Really disappointed by this one. It is well propped up to keep it from falling, so it's a little underwhelming in person. Don't plan on spending a great deal of time stopping here.

Petrified wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay due to oxygen and organisms. Then, groundwater rich in dissolved solids flows through the sediment, replacing the original plant material with silica, calcite, pyrite, or another inorganic...More

This was one of our favorite stops along the drive through the Petrified Forest National Park. It is a very short walk from the parking area and features a nice view and a 110-foot long petrified log bridge. While a concrete base has been added...More
