Natural Bridge, Kicking Horse River, Yoho National Park, Alberta

The Kicking Horse River, a Canadian Heritage river, originates in the Wapta and Waputik icefields in Yoho National Park. This mighty river has created a Natural Bridge through solid rock. The Natural Bridge formation is located 3 km west of Field, accessible from the road to Emerald Lake.


Yoho National Park covers 1,313 km² (507 mi²) and it is the smallest of the four contiguous national parks (NP). Yoho, together with Jasper NP, Kootenay NP and Banff NP, along with three British Columbia provincial parks—Hamber Provincial Park, Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park, and Mount Robson Provincial Park—form the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site.
