This is a wonderful place to visit that most people overlook in their rush to Arches or Mesa Verde. Although it is much smaller and has less features than those other two parks, one can get far more intimately involved here. The vastly smaller amount of people means that one can have some peace & quiet when viewing the bridges.... More

This park was not on the Grand Circle itinerary we were following but it was so close to our path we decided to check it out. We are so glad we did. It was a refreshing break among the pines from the busier parks in Utah. Everything was clean and well kept. The views are terrific. Very cool to see... More

Natural Bridges National Monument is nice to see but not that spectacular that we would make a detour if it was not on our route. It is interesting to see how nature has made these constructions by comparing the formation of the different bridges.

We hiked down to each of the three bridges. In my opinion the last bridge was the easiest to hike to. We only came in contact with 5 other families the entire day. I love that! The day we went it was 78 degrees, which was warm enough with the hiking we did. We brought three liters of water and... More

Beautiful area. Liked it better than arches because it was less crowded. Spectacular bridges and Anasazi ruins,. Be aware that you will need to get out of the car and do some walking to be able to see anything.

This place was a last minute addition to our itinerary and we were glad that we added it. There are three magnificent bridges that were sculpted by water from the stone. Sipapu, Kachina & Owachomo. From the visitor center you drive a nine-mile loop (one way) to the three viewpoints. You also have the choice to hike to the individual... More

Saw all three bridges. Interesting to learn the difference between a bridge and an arch. Bridges require a bit of walking if you wish to see them up close and personal. Let wife do the walking. There weren't hordes of people which was nice.

We visited Natural Bridges during afternoon on our way to Monument Valley. It was probably the most accessible and best maintained national park property we visited during. Our two week stay. The staff were very friendly and courteous. I regret we didn't have a lot of time so we didn't do any hikes but we could easily see the bridges... More

We went to this park to watch sunset and find a spot to set up our camera and telescope. After days of being surrounded by foreign tour buses and tourists, this quite place was a wonderful change of pace. We had a lot of clouds in the area but had a good hour of dark skies for pictures. There didn't... More

This park is very small and is in the middle of nowhere - but that is what the take pride in. They did a program after dark for stargazing and the ranger that ran that session was awesome! He brought out a huge, powerful telescope and we looked at various planets and the moon through it. Unfortunately there had been... More
