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

An interesting sight that requires about 5 minutes. The log is propped up by cement otherwise it would crack.

Amazing that this bridge is still there and in one piece. I was quite taken with the structures near the gully that had formed from eons of wind and water erosion. Very close to the parking area about a sixty second walk, slightly downhill just...More

“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

The setting and views here are amazing. The giant log spanning a desert wash is interesting. A short walk takes you down for a close look.
