Owachomo may be viewed by a quick hike along an easy trail down a fairly gentle slope starting at the roadside viewpoint, ending at a slickrock bowl directly beneath, at the edge of Armstrong Canyon which runs past on the north side. Armstrong is rather shallow at this point but still receives big floods periodically as evident from a huge, permanent pool just downstream. The bridge spans 180 feet but is just 9 feet thick so will be the first of the three to break, yet it is still likely to survive for several more centuries. Continuation hikes are possible either down the canyon via the 8 mile trail, up the cliffs on the far side to an alternative viewpoint of the bridge, or upstream - although this part of Armstrong Canyon has no path, the terrain is quite moderate.
