AAA Editor Notes
Tonto Natural Bridge State Park, 10 mi. n.w. off SR 87, is bordered by Tonto National Forest. The bridge, among the world's largest natural travertine structures, reaches a height of 183 feet; the opening beneath is 150 feet wide and 400 feet long. A historic lodge (available for overnight stays) is furnished with antiques that were lowered into the canyon using ropes and mules. There are four easily accessible viewpoints from which to see the bridge; the walk to each is less than a half-mile.Note: Four trails lead into the canyon; all are steep and difficult for many persons to negotiate. Pets are not permitted on canyon trails but are permitted at viewpoints.Pet friendly (call for restrictions/fees.). Recreational activities are permitted. Picnicking is permitted.
