We spent the night at the campground and drove around to see the bridges. My husband and friend also did one of the hike. The weather was perfect - especially first thing in the morning. At night we saw the most beautiful sunset! Their were just vault toilets and on showers out here - so definitly a rustic outback campground... More

It was near the end of the day and the light was fading fast. We only hiked to the Owachomo Bridge. We viewed the other two bridges from the overlooks. In order to get great views of the other bridges you would have to hike to them. Unfortunately we didn’t have the time to hike. We drove up from the... More

We hiked down to below the Sipapu bridge... very neat hike as we had stairs, ladders, crossing rock outcroppings, etc.

My husband and I visited Natural bridges on November 21. The weather was around forty degrees. It was perfect for hiking to see the bridges from the bottom trails. The park ranger was very helpful. It was a short scenic drive of about eight miles. We stopped at all viewing areas and as recommended by another visitor walked to the... More

Stopped by on way to Moab. Was very hot and we did only minimal hiking. View from the scenic road viewpoints is not impressive as the bridges are distant. Think the best way to do this park would be by hiking. Trails have major elevation gains and the heat can be oppressive, so you would have to be pretty hard... More

If you are just going to do the scenic drive I think you will probably be disappointed. The scenic drive is an 8.5 mile loop. There are 3 bridges that you can see from the overlooks. What you can see from the top of the canyon is not very impressive. We did two of the hikes. The Owachomo Bridge trail... More

The natural bridges that are located in this monument are another of Earth's wonders to behold. As the area is more remote than some other monuments, it is not heavily visited, making accessibility to the trails that lead down to the bridges uncrowded. The trails vary in difficulty, but there are a couple that I say would be accessible to... More

We mainly went here to see the night sky. We seen more starts than we thought possible. Shooting stars, planets, they were all visible. It was beautiful!

Truly a wonder of nature. Though not as many as Arches NP but still a beautiful place to see. Take the trail down to bottom of the canyon and look up to the bridge. The view was great.

The small loop road that takes you past each of the three natural bridges which you can hike down to and thereby get some excellent photography. They claim one of these bridges is one of the highest in the world. A very quiet and unspoilt treasure which is obviously not that well known. Travellers, your missing a treat.
