Summary Author: Stan Wagon 

Red Bar Bridge is a remarkable landform found at the head of a small wash near the bottom of the Moki Dugway, a famously steep road near Mexican Hat, Utah. This waterfall bridge forms a natural arch caused by the tremendous flow of water and has dimensions of approximately 85 feet (26 m) in length with an 8.5-foot (2.6 m) gap. The arch is composed of sandstone from the Halgaito Sandstone Formation, which underlies the massive Cedar Mesa Sandstone Formation. These formations are part of the Cutler Geologic Group that arose during the Permian period.
