Description

When entering the Dewey Bridge recreation area, prepare to witness an example of how the Colorado river (through erosion) has exposed different types of sandstone. Near the River you will notice the distinctive white, rounded Navajo formations common in the Colorado Plateau. Look above this layer, and enjoy the buttes & towers built of darker Entrata sandstone.
The Dewey suspension bridge is worth a look if visiting the area. Originally built in 1916 to support horse and carriage, it is not currently used by our more modern means of transportation.
The area holds serene camping, boating, climbing, and mountain biking opportunities (Kokopelli trail runs through it). If you want to avoid the crowds of Moab, this is a great area to relax and unwind.
RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Getting There

Dewey bridge is located 30 miles north of Moab on rt. 128 (Colorado scenic byway-river road). If approaching from I-70 head south on rte. 128 from either of two Cisco exits.

There's a lot of fragile cryptobiotic soil near the bases of these routes. Be careful where you're stepping. Mar 17, 2009
