Hickman Bridge is one of Capitol Reef National Park’s most popular attractions.  With an impressive 133 foot (40 m) span and standing 125 feet tall, this arch is a must see when visiting this quiet park.  The trail begins at the bank of the Fremont River and climbs gradually until reaching switchbacks leading up the Kayenta sandstone.  After this steep section, the remainder of the trail becomes moderate on the difficulty scale.  Nearing Hickman Bridge some very fun cave like formations can be found off to the right side of the trail.  Visitors can walk under the bridgeway providing an up close look at the massive structure above you.  A true wonder of nature!
