Named after rancher/prospector William Granstaff, Negro Bill Canyon follows a perennial stream that drains into the Colorado river. The trail, shaded by cottonwood and willow trees, stays near the creek for 1.85 miles, then ascends a canyon wall and ends under Morning Glory natural bridge. Family and dog friendly, it's an easy trek until the short climb. Access is free on BLM land. The natural bridge is a cool destination and a good place for a snack. It has a span of 243 feet, which is the 6th longest span in the U.S., according to BLM statistics. Watch for poison ivy growing under the bridge.
