Please respect the outdoors by practicing Leave No Trace. Learn more about how to apply the principles of Leave No Trace on your next outdoor adventure here.

If you’re around Escalante, take some time to hike to the little-known Covered Wagon Natural Bridge. From Escalante, Proctor Road eventually becomes Cedar Wash Road. The trailhead is 3.3 miles on Cedar Wash Road from where the road turns to a dirt road.  The road is passable with a standard passenger car unless it rains.

The trailhead is not marked and only a small pull-off. From the parking area there is an obvious trail that drops down into a wash.  Turn left and the natural bridge is a short distance away.  Explore a little further to see a carved out cave. When you’re ready, return the way you came.
