Before starting on the drive through this astounding monument, stop at the Visitor's Center first; it's worth the while to better understand what you will be seeing. Going along the Bridge View Drive, we were impressed with the stunning overlooks and the three natural bridges....More

We hiked down to the bottom of all three natural bridges. If you have time for only one hike, do Owachono. It's about 30 minutes round trip and the view from under the bridge is fascinating. If you can spare another hour for a hike...More

You can hike to bridges or take a car tour that takes you to viewing overlooks. Not much camping but we camped outside the park on an old landing strip. It has about 3 areas to back in among the vegetation. Very cool. This NM...More

This is a great National Monument that has great places to see the natural bridges from along the road. For more adventure you can take several hikes down into the canyon and under the bridges.

I cannot believe that I lived in Utah so long without visiting this place! We went when the streams were dry and it was beautiful! Cannot wait to get back to see what NBNM looks like with foliage and water@

I know that disabilities come in many different kinds, but I think all the overlooks at Natural Bridges are fully accessible. Getting to the bridges themselves is a bit harder, but the Owachomo bridge trail is the shortest... More
We're heading out on a road trip to CO and UT and will already be hitting up Arches National Park. Is it worth adding another day to our trip and another 5+ hours of driving to hit up National Bridges as well?
