NABSQNO 12S-479503-4238174. Hickman Natural Bridge is a shelter natural arch eroded through Kayenta Sandstone. It is located near the historic town of Fruita in Capitol Reef National Park, Wayne County, Utah. It is reached via a pleasant hike of less than a mile from state highway 24. The trail leads past a pair of small waterfall natural bridges that are interesting in their own right. Vreeland included this arch as number 9-33 in his catalog and reported a span of 133 feet. Previous classifications of the arch as a meander natural bridge must be considered incorrect.
