Anasazi Foot Bridge

Mile 43 - Anasazi Foot Bridge

Spanning a gap in the cliffs 300 feet above the river, this prehistoric bridge made from pine trees, helped people from the Ancestral Puebloan Culture hike in and out on the canyon’s north side. Across the river from the bridge, on the south side, the Eminence Fault has broken apart the normally shear face of Redwall Limestone. One can imagine, especially when the river was low enough for humans to walk or swim across, a trans canyon route that prehistoric peoples used for generations.
