The natural bridges of White Canyon were known by the Navajo and Paiute long before European settlers came to Utah. The Anasazi lived among the bridges in White Canyon, and hikers today visit the canyon not only to explore the unique natural spans of stone but also to see Anasazi ruins and rock art. This memorable half-day hike surveys the two largest natural bridges in the monument, separated by the dramatic bulging Cedar Mesa sandstone cliffs of White Canyon. En route, the trail passes Horse Collar Ruin, an example of an unusual style of Anasazi architecture. The trail loops back to the trailhead via the mesa top, thus surveying the entire spectrum of monument landscapes.
