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.
