Come visit Utah’s first National Monument and the very first Dark-Sky Park.

Designated as Utah’s first National Monument in 1908 by Theodore Roosevelt, the Natural Bridges Monument features three prominent sandstone rock bridges formed by erosion caused by Colorado River drainage. They are located about 50 miles northwest of the Four Corners borderline. One of the bridges, named Sipapu, is the thirteenth largest natural bridge in the world.

The three bridges can be viewed on Bridge View Drive, or by a trailhead that goes to the bases of each bridge. There is also a Pueblo Indian ruin called Horsecaller Ruin that is visible from an overlook just a short hike from Bridge View Drive. The ruin features an undisturbed rectangular kiva with the original roof and interior, and two granaries with unusual oval shaped doors whose shape resembles horse collars.

The park was named the first International Dark-Sky Park in 2007 meaning it has one of the darkest and clearest skies in the United States making it perfect for stargazing. The park also contains a campground, picnic area and visitor’s center.
