If you are just looking for a NM with good views of natural bridges, a short walk from your vehicle this is the best place to go. But what if you like to live on the wild side and want to hike down into a canyon on narrow ledges and stand under a natural bridge... This is still the best... More

Was outside of peak. No one else there so we could easily stop any where any time. Camp grounds looked nice. Visitor center manned by volunteers very informative and courteous. Would not go there during peak one way narrow road with limited parking. Would hike during peak only!

We were on our way from Moab to Monument Valley, so we decided to stop off at Natural Bridges because it was on the way and because it was covered by our annual pass. It is a small monument, so we only spent about 1 hr there. There are 3 bridges and it is really quite fascinating the way they... More

NATURAL BRIDGES NATIONAL MONUMENT (UTAH’S HIDDEN BYWAYS X) NATURAL BRIDGES NATIONAL MONUMENT, tucked away into the corner of Southeastern Utah, is a relatively small federal area containing three gems. These are Sipapu, Owachomo, and Kachina Natural Bridges, with the names coming from the Hopi. Sipapu bridge is the largest of the three bridges, and one of the largest in the... More

Arriving at about 10:00 AM the rangers were the only people through the park ahead of us that day. They advised us that there were really only a couple of turn-outs where there was only a short icy walk to the viewing locations. The bridges are almost invisible in single digit weather with double digit winds but my eyes eventually... More

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
