A day hike to an overlook of Natural Bridge. This rewarding trail penetrates a hidden corner of Chiricahua National Monument to reach a small stone bridge weathered out of bedrock by centuries of erosion. The path climbs at a steady clip, topping out on a high plateau where piƱon pine and alligator juniper rise above a chaparral community of manzanita, bear grass, and yucca. Two buttes faced with cliffs and spires rise ahead as the trail runs westward, and the tawny grasslands of the Sulphur Springs Valley stretch away beyond them. This enchanting woodland of ponderosa and Chihuahua pines occupies a flat basin surrounded by fascinating rock formations. The tall pines fall away as the trail climbs to an overlook spot that marks its terminus. High on the far wall of the canyon, the natural bridge spans a narrow gulch lined by oak trees. This stout, 30-foot span of welded tuff has been weathered out of the bedrock by the passage of water, which eroded the weaker rock beneath the bridge.
