This span is located in the Painted Desert part of the Park
north of Interstate 40. Chinde N.B. (Rob's name) can be seen by
walking east a few hundred feet from the sign at the rim of Chinde
Point. Look down to where the steep hillside begins to level out as
you walk east toward Kachina Point. You can see the span in a small
gully about 300 ft. below. There is no trail to the N.B. but if one wears
sturdy ankle-supporting boots, one can switchback down to the N.B.
for a close look at the well-preserved knot holes in the bridge.
Alternately, using a GPS, one can walk down the developed trail
below nearby Kachina Point and walk cross-country to Chinde N.B. at
UTM 12S 609960E 3883479N (WGS84). This last route can be
exercised while exploring for Onyx N.B.
See Chinde N.B. Two and Three for different views of this span.
