Often overlooked as most people focus on the Arches, the bridges (formed differently, usually by rivers, but some refer to as arches) are much larger, grander, and arguably more spectacular. There is a driving loop through the park, and most bridges are visible from the scenic points or within very short hikes. If you are going from Moab to Monument... More

This park has a 9 mile one way road with several places to stop and view the 3 natural bridges. There are trails to all of the bridges but all but one were above my ability. Views were incredible. Few people in the park and the silence was wonderful

Breathtaking scenery at every turn of the road, on a short 9 mile drive. We did not take any of the hiking paths but I am sure they are amazing due to the natural rock formations.

This was an unexpectedly fun stop between Monument Valley and Moab as we toured The Grand Circle. Trails were on gorgeous slick rock with ladders to climb down. It was very hot, as the trail to Sipapu Bridge is almost all in direct sunlight, but it was well worth it! The park is connected by a 9-mile drive and you... More

This monument is not on the beaten path. If it is on your way, stop for a quick visit. There are some cliff dwellings--far away from view. My wife and I walked to the last bridge. Easy walk.

Out of the way, so you have to be headed there. Scenic drive is worth it by itself. Very small park, loop road that has plenty of overlooks to view the natural bridges. We did not have time to make any of the hikes, but the overlooks had very nice paved trails, looks to be new improvements, signage, and paving,... More

In conjunction with a trip to Monument Valley, we made a side trip to Natural Bridges. The road from Mexican Hat over the mountain was an adventure in driving an "unimproved" dirt road. Quite a drive. Wish we had more time to explore the natural bridges. They are really outstanding.

Before entering the park we asked the ranger if we would be able to see the bridges either from the car or minimal walking. He said yes. Wrong! You can see nothing from the car. The first one required a walk down to an overlook where the bridge could be seen in far distance. Uphill walk back to car. The... More

Natural Bridges National Monument highlights three bridges that were formed when water rushed underneath and carved away softer rock. The process is different than how the arches were formed in Arches National Park and it was a good contrast in the power of nature. The scenic drive/road provided easy access to all of the bridges. If you can, spend some... More
