Brunch at the Bridge - Celebrate Earth Day in Northern Arizona

Tonto Natural Bridge State Park

Sunday, April 22, 2018   10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Tonto Natural Bridge State Park is hosting an open house and “Brunch at the Bridge” on Sunday, April 22 to showcase the rustic Goodfellow Lodge and update visitors on new planned trails and development at the park.

The event will introduce the new park manager, Dan Roddy, and include a breakfast cooked on site. Attendees can enjoy scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, juice, coffee and more. Goodfellow Lodge, which is now open for overnight stays, will be available for the public to tour and experience the Old West charm of the 10 guest rooms. 

Attendees will also receive a behind-the-scenes look at the Pedestrian Bridge Walkway project. Sunday, April 22nd will be the only time the public will be able to utilize the Gowan Trail at Tonto Natural Bridge State Park until the project is completed in late May. 

A custom railing is being installed by Woodruff and Buzzard construction companies that will let guests walk up the first set of steps and about 10 feet on to the walkway. Visitors will get a great view of the project with the impressive southern bridge face and waterfall in the background.

Due to limited availability, park guests will need a Brunch ticket in order to visit this portion of the park on Sunday. All guests will have the opportunity to sign souvenir wood planks utilized in the walkway project. The park will also have special displays to highlight upcoming park improvements.

The cost of the event is $15, which includes brunch and an all-day park pass. You can also visit, select "events" from the top menu and purchase your tickets with debit or credit cards.
