Natural Bridges National Monument, Utah

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known” – Carl Sagan

Natural bridges look similar to arches but they are formed by water rather than erosion, and are much rarer. Natural Bridges National Monument is on Hyw 275 which is off Hwy 95 near Mexican Hat. It is isolated and gets far fewer visitors than a place like Arches NP, but it is well worth a visit. Here is the Visitor’s Guide. Natural Bridges National Monument has a nine mile loop drive which connects to trails to three natural bridges.

Sipapu Bridge:The longest of the three bridges at Natural bridges National Monument, it is reachedĀ  by a 1.2 mile round tripĀ  trail, fairly steep at the bottom.
