This monument offers so much more than Natural Rock Bridges and Historic Indian ruins but those are the highlights. The paved road provides good access to some of the sites and some are wheel chair accessible but many require a little hiking so take your walking shoes and your camera! Stop at the visitor's center before heading into the monument... More

Natural Bridges has to be on your list of "must" visits. A short drive of 8 miles, round trip, and at least three short hikes to the three bridges and you'll be hooked on the geology of this out of the way gem. There is a small, dry campground available, however, we opted for a RV park with full hookups... More

Awesome park, but we came too close to sun set, so not much time left for hiking and exploring. A very welcoming and knowledgeable ranger gave us good information about the area and it's ancient inhabitants. We were followed through the whole park by a couple of ravens who would attack the car wherever we stopped. On the parking lots... More

Natural Bridges is one of Utah's hidden gems. The park is not huge, but well worth the stop. When we were there we saw three other humans in the park, plus the park staff. Take your time and soak in the serenity of this jewel.

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

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
