We took the long way 'round to the park from Phoenix: north on Hwy 17 to Camp Verde, then east/south on 260 to the park. There was snow in the mountains.The forest was stunning in white. As we descended toward the park, the snow disappeared. The sign to Tonto Natural Bridge was easy to spot. The ranger station/gift shop was... 更多
We loved this park because the trail leading down to the bridge is so very scenic. I had an injury at the time (and bad knees) so the 200 feet down was challenging but was so worth it. I couldn't take advantage of climbing through the rocks under the bridge because they were quite slippery but it was still very... 更多
