See impressive geological formations and explore archeological sites at . A paved, one-way loop road takes you through the park and lets you access the three natural bridges that are the result of thousands of years of natural erosion. Take one of the hiking trails to get an even closer look at the bridges. The hikes are not too long; in some places they feature stairs and ladders that make them more accessible. Trails also lead to well-preserved Anasazi ruins. Be sure to bring enough water--you won't find any along the trails.

  • Bear's Ears is one of America's newest National Monuments and it is likely to loose it's monument designation soon. Politics -- that's all that can be said. I'd heard of Bear's Ears and wanted to see ...  more »
  • Natural bridges that stand out in the beauty of the Canyon. Landscapes absolutely unimaginable for us Europeans. Simple trekking routes to enjoy the tranquility and the shadow of a natural bridge!

  •  Ignoring the signs, believe the GoogleMap was heading by car access to natural bridges national monument is slightly confusing, I rely on Google maps to directions of the Google Map not found signs of natural bridges National Monument Park, despite being guided walking into thickets of off-road and then through the crossing, as shown on the Google Map driving a road, I was confused. After all the way back, return to signs arrived if I follow.  Please note that this is being planned to go by car. Once it arrives toll gate there, visitor centre, parked there, not counter to voluntarily pay admission. You can pass Visitor Center, so a valid national park if you have a National Park annual pass. At the visitor center can get maps of the Park.  And leave the visitor center which is on the other hand one-way loop drive, parking is available at each point of view places. Natural bridges national monument's most famous attractions is the owachomo bridge. It is famous for can be observed in the United States the dark night sky. Photos of the night sky in the visitor centre I visited during the day, but was certainly beautiful. Owachomo bridge walk from the parking lot and down the rocks, about 10 minutes. Have sewn natural rocks that may have been made by the stone stairs and descend the beautiful starry sky still walking in the dark in the evening was a fierce impression. I felt great against the blue sky when the night sky is famous even in the daytime, however, fully and beautifully, looked up from under the bridge.  It is possible to go on the other side, walking under the bridge. Even in this National Park's most famous owachomo bridge, so many people not ready to settle down, relax and feel the natural, liked very much. Recommend the.
