Rainbow Bridge National Monument will be closed for the month of January to complete repairs to the trail from Lake Powell.
For mind-blowing scenery, vast vistas of eroded stone, and rugged topography, Utah is the place. The Beehive State is home to five national parks (Arches, Bryce, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Zion) and five national monuments (Cedar Breaks, Grand Staircase-Escalante (managed by the BLM), Rainbow Bridge, Natural Bridges, and Hovenweep) for good reason. It’s the greatest earth on show.
Barring an unforeseen event, Rainbow Bridge National Monument in Utah was scheduled to reopen Friday after crews rebuilt a trail that had been washed out earlier this month.
