"A day hike to an overlook of Natural Bridge, 2.4 miles one way. 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 piñon 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."
