Tonto Natural Bridge is one of Arizona’s incredible state parks, and it just so happens to be a short drive from the Inn! It boasts the world’s largest natural travertine bridge. It is truly a sight to behold, and our family always loves visiting and exploring. Currently, all of the hiking trails at the park are closed, BUT the paved path leading to all four viewpoints is open, so you can still go and enjoy the grandeur. Throughout the year, visiting the Tonto Natural Bridge website directly is the best way to confirm hours and openings.

When the hiking trails are open, you can hike all the way down and go under the travertine bridge. It’s incredible! There are several different hikes of varying difficulty levels, so there’s truly something for everyone. At the trailhead, there is a visitor center/park store, picnic areas, bathroom facilities, and more.
Our girls love exploring here, and always have a blast searching for wildflowers, ladybugs, and we’ve even seen javelinas roaming the park!
