Natural Bridges National Monument was the first monument in Utah - the land was set aside by Theodore Roosevelt. Three Natural bridges can be view on an easy 9 mile drive - there are trails to each for folks taking the time to really experience the Monument. A fine visitor center staffed by knowledgeable and accommodating members. Remember to use... More

Drove in to the visitor center and paid our fee spoke with the counter staff and they were friendly. Went outside to go on a drive/hike and met the Park Ranger on his way in. He stopped to talk to us and went out of his way to offer advice on a good hike we would be able to get... More

This Natural Monument is really spectacular. We decided to do the 8-1/2 mile complete loop of the canyons. On the Rangers suggestion, we parked at Owachomo car park, hiked the 2 miles across the Mesa and then down into the canyon at Sipapu. All three bridges are stunning and beautiful. The hike itself was one of the best we have... More

This national monument is relatively small. A short drive and a few stops. We did not get out and hike but I am sure that would be a beautiful way to see the Natural Bridges. Worth the stop if driving by.

The three bridges, Kachina, Sipapu, and Owachomo are very easy to hike to. I liked the Sipapu Bridge the best. The Owachomo bridge is the easiest trail and the Sipapu Bridge is the hardest trail.

What a surprising find! We made a point to visit here because we enjoy viewing natural bridges. The monument is one of the oldest in the park system and deservedly so. You have the option of seeing the bridges from a distance along the road, but take time to enjoy or more short hikes to view the bridges up close... More

Camped here for one night with my son. Hiked down to the bridges and in the canyon. We saw no other hikers. Wonderful experience. Campsites are first come, first served. You can check at the Ranger station, but basically you wait for a campsite to be vacated, claim the spot (i.e. park your vehicle) and then self register at the... More

Lots of walking, even for the overlooks.... but well worth it! :) Inexpensive and beautiful, but bring sunblock and water.

If you've never been here, COME! You'll be able to say you did and you won't regret the trip. It's a little out of the way if you are only coming to the National Monument, but it is surrounded by TONS of other things to do before and after. Here's a sample– Goosenecks State Park, Muley Point, Valley of the... More
