Cottonwood CG Natural Bridge
Cottonwood CG Natural Bridge     There are relatively few natural bridges compared to the number of natural arches; so even this small span is worth being included. This one is located in Grand Canyon N.P. It is easily reached from the Cottonwood Campground along the North Kaibab Trail. Look up the shallow drainage to the east of the trail when you are about 200 feet from the southern end of the Ranger Station at the Cottonwood Campground. Look for a large forked cottonwood like you see in the photo. The natural bridge is visible from the trail, although it may not be apparent under some lighting conditions. It's about 7.2 miles north of the Bright Angel Campground.
