This National Monument makes it easy to view a number of natural bridges. The more adventurous can also get close to the bridges and also view petroglyphs and ruins. Make sure to check on when the park visitor center is open should you choose to visit outside the busy summer season. In winter, the park visitors center is closed on... More

The views of the bridges from the lookout points accessible from the very well maintained loop road are underwhelming. Really not worth it unless you have time and energy for the hikes necessary to get closer.

My daughter and I camped here 2 nights and hiked to all three bridges in one full day. Beautiful place with the best staff I've ever encountered at a National Park or Monument. They even came by the campground to check on us and invite us to activities. The facilities were very well taken care of with simple touches that... More

The one-way Bridge View Drive is open 24 hours, but the visitor center was closed when we went there. A map of the area is available outside. A short walk is required to get to the overlooks. Kachina Bridge is listed as difficult to see from its overlook and a difficult hike down is recommended. The overlook view is fine... More

This place is AMAZING! You get to hike right up to and under 3 really beautiful Natural Bridges. There is a lot to see in this relatively small National Monument. It is well worth your time to check it out. It is BEAUTIFUL! The Visitor Center is well staffed with highly enthusiastic Park Rangers and volunteers. The gift shop is... More

Campground: Complete update and renovation of the campground. Excellent place to camp in this area though only a couple of sites for big campers (a good thing to us). The campground was completely renovated. Very quiet here. Dark sky area at night...very dark, like world record dark. Make sure you bring food and get water at the visitor center...you are... More

We decided to take the scenic route from Bluff, Ut to Natural Bridges using Hwy 261 just north of Mexican Hat, UT. My Garmin showed this route as paved - WRONG ! There was about a four mile section of road that was dirt and gravel with many switchbacks and no guard rails. Very exciting route. I suppose you could... More

I guess this is classified as a National Monument rather than a National Park due to it's small size. You can drive round, hike down to the bridges and be done in half a day. Or you can walk all the way around visiting all the bridges in a day. Although a keen hiker I recommend the driving and hiking... More
