Tower Bridge

The trail to Tower Bridge begins at Sunrise Point and heads northeast along the Fairyland Loop Trail, it is not a loop trail. This trail is considered a "moderate hike" due to the drop in elevation from the rim down to Tower Bridge of 950 ft/290 m, and takes about 2-3 hours to complete the 3 mile (4.8 km) hike. Once at Tower Bridge one has the option of returning to Sunset point or continuing on farther around the Fairyland Loop. It is suggested to carry plenty of water while hiking.
