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

We hiked the canyon floor, a six hour journey to the three natural bridges there. A bit of a slog at times but the scenery had a certain Indiana Jones/Jurrasic Park feel about it as well. What I mean by that is the sense that you are exploring places untouched by human feet and almost anything could be hiding around... More

This is a great park! The natural bridges are easily accessible for all unlike Arches National Park. We loved it.

When camping in April at the Natural Bridges National Monument one day I spent hiking a loop visiting three bridges. Early in the morning I started my hike at the Owachomo Bridge trailhead. The parking is huge but there is no restroom. The trail starts as a paved wide path but only for a very short distance to the view... More

Rugged, challenging views and trails for those that have the time. MUch smaller than Arches or Canyon Land but the 3 bridges you see are well worth the trip there.

This is a worthwhile stop: 3 natural bridges, each visible from its own scenic overlook, and each also accessible from its own trail to the base. The overlooks are all along a one-way loop road through the park. The 3rd trail is the most easily travelled. There is a small visitor's center, with helpful rangers on duty. Note: the drive... More

The Natural bridges National Monument is 50km or so out of Blanding. It is a smallish park. It has a one way road system. The first two bridges, Sipapu Bridge and Kachina Bridge, are set deep in the canyon and not fully visible from the rim. The hike to them is quite difficult. The last bridge, Qwachomo Bridge, is more... More
