Wonderful visit to this site

What a phenomenal area - so interesting and beautiful.. By all means, take a hike to one of the bridges and get up close. Very uncrowded too.

We had just come from Monument Valley and the Valley of the Gods so with hindsight Natural Bridges was always going to be s let down after such magnificence. In the afternoon the sun was in the wrong position for us to see clearly and so recommend the morning if you are a photographer.

I really enjoyed this National Monument. It is located about two hours from Kayenta or two hours from Moab. Plan to spend at least a half day here in order to drive the loop road and hike down to all three natural bridges. I arrived here at 8:30am and left at 12:30pm. I liked this place a lot better than... More

We did not spend a lot of time at this National Monument because we still had a drive ahead of us, but it was certainly worth the time spent to see the beautiful sites. I wish we could have allowed extra time to do a bit more hiking to more than just the Sipapu Bridge.

Another fantastic place to visit if you are in Utah. The hike down to the main arch was a lot of fun even though we did it in the rain. So worth it. You could see all the arches from the roadway so that was nice since it was raining pretty hard most of the day.

Worthwhile! Owachomo Bridge is an easy hike with kids and just gorgeous. Take the time to drive to see the bridges if staying in Blanding; you won't regret it.

We had a very enjoyable 5 hour visit. The visitors center staff is most helpful, very clean restrooms, excellent 10-minute introduction to the park video and ample parking. The hike to the first Bridge, Sipapu was challenging but very doable. The metal stairs bolted into the canyon wall as well as the ladders made of tree branches also bolted into... More

The bridges are well worth the hikes to see first hand and up close! Trails are well marked. Plenty of photo opportunities.

A stunning place to visit. You can drive along all the bridges and take walks down if you want to. Beautifull nature, a little surprise, because you don't expect this in the surroundibgs of Blanding. A must go.

We didnt go to see any of the other bridges/arches in the area so we thought this would be nice. Slightly dissapointed with this one, since the other arches in the area look better from what I can tell from pictures. The bridges are down in a gorge so they dont have any cool views attached to them. I would... More
