It is a clean national monument. The hike to the third bridge is easy. If you are fit, you could do the others as well. It was work the stop and does not take long to go through the park. You do learn the difference between natural bridges and arches.

This National Monument is well worth the detour off the main highway. There is some great scenery along the drive. It has a visitor center staffed with helpful, friendly park rangers and has some nice picnic tables in the shade behind the visitor center. The scenic loop is freshly resurfaced and well marked. Most of the natural bridges are a... More

This small monument is just off the 95 at the lower end of the spectacular White Canyon. The visitors' centre offers a plan of the monument and a map to plan treks or simply sit and wonder at the various bridge viewpoints. Difficult to describe other than breathtaking and the view of Sipapu, one of the largest natural bridges in... More

This was our second time to Natural Bridges. The first time we had young children so didn't hike any of the trails. This time we took the shortest hike and it was beautiful. The hike was short, a little steep, but very doable even for us older folks.

This was a short relaxing ride thru the park with pull outs and parking for the three bridge viewpoints and trail heads. The scenery was spectacular. The trails vary in difficulty but are not long. Well worth the visit.

This was a beautiful and most relaxing ride through the park! Scenery was breathtaking! Wish we had more time there! Would have loved to do a mini hike.

We took a swing through Utah to visit the sights in our national treasures. Some parks we've visited require some rugged hiking to get to the most beautiful views. This National Monument however is perfect for those who may not be able nor have the time to make the hike. While certainly hiking is an option, the park is laid... More

What a great place to visit plenty of small reasonably easy trails with fantastic views plus harder trails for the fitter visitor if you are up to it. Well maintained by the national park service with a small but pleasing visitor centre. Well worth the trip

On our trip from Moab, UT after visiting Canyonlands and Arches National Parks, we headed towards Natural Bridges National Monument, on our way to Monument Valley. It is a very beautiful drive and seeing the natural bridges is pretty awesome. It takes about an hour for a stop at the visitors center, a quick trip around the viewing loop and... More

Understand that we didn't hike to the bottom to see the arches up close and if we had, the rating would probably be higher. The views were pretty and the viewing areas were clean, well maintained and relatively easy to get to. We were a little disappointed that the hike to get to the arches was so long and difficult....
