We happened to visit the Monument during the 2018 partial Government shutdown so didn't get in to visit the visitors center. We were also not prepared for winter hiking so we didn't hike to any of the bridges. But this is another of Southern Utah's...More

I really enjoyed this place. I took two hikes, the first was to Sipapu Bridge, a spectacular trail with some steep and rocky places, a few ladders and also some stairs. Great scenery on the way and magnificent at the Bridge itself. Then I walked...More

If you want a quick, accessible drive there are 3 natural bridges to see in less than 2 hours. It was raining the day we went so that's all we did. I would have liked to hike between two of the bridges; the trails looked...More

Natural Bridges National Monument is only 40 miles from Cortez CO, but it is a 140 mile drive. I have to say the drive is worth it. An natural bridge differs from an arch in that water forms and runs under a bridge while most...More
