We (I and five friends) visited the park, mostly to find a campsite on our way to another park. The campground was full, but the young lady at the visitor center made sure we had a good variety of alternate places to choose from just outside the park. We chose a spot on the road to "Bear Ears" on BLM... More

This park is a hidden treasure with 3 gorgeous bridges to explore . No traffic at all. Each trail, we encountered less than 10 people. You can have the entire bridge to yourself at one time! The first bridge trail is the most interesting and strenuous one with a combination of shaded walk, ladders, steep stairs, cliff and river walk... More

This is a site worth visiting. The drive was pleasant, staff were friendly, and the sites were beautiful.

My first trip a few years ago consisted of stopping at the view points and taking a few photos. This time, I tried hiking to the bottom of each of the three bridges or arches. The very first bridge has a elevation drop of 500'. Not too bad going, but coming back up is very, very tough. The second bridge... More

So this park has some pros and cons. Pros: - We entered the park around 7pm and it was completely empty. No need to fight over parking, or mind other guests. Also, since we arrived after visiting hours (the visitor centered closes at 6pm), we didn't have to pay a park entrance fee - Amazing scenery to the park and... More

Fun park with a small 9 mile driving loop. We did the hike down to Sipapu, well, did half the hike. We asked at the visitor center which bridge to hike to since we only had time to do one. The gal said Sipapu is the most impressive. What she didn't say was, if you are afraid of steep heights... More

Amazing how these natural bridges have been carved over the years. Wasn't able to do the trails but the road side viewing area's are very easy to walk to with great views

The drive to the Natural Bridge Monument is neat when you drive through a cut that was blasted out of the ridge just for the road. There is an 8 mile loop with numerous pull offs to photograph the three natural bridges and other natural sites.

These three rock formations are easy to view with little walking, some more than others. The surrounding scenery is as fascinating as the bridges themselves. Enjoyed the drive very much.

Natural Bridges National Monument was so great! We loved it! There were beautiful natural bridges and ancient Native American ruins. We hiked the short distance to see the Horsecollar Ruin. It was an easy hike with amazing views. There were several hikes in the monument, but we didn't have time to do them. We'd like to go back there and... More
