Natural Bridges Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Utah’s first national monument, Natural Bridges became a protected area in 1908 in order to preserve the incredible grandeur of its natural bridges. People back then wouldn’t have considered that the area would also become renowned for its dark night skies many decades later; being far removed from the light pollution of more populous areas, Natural Bridges boasts some of the most stellar night-sky viewing in the Lower 48.
The key attractions here, however, are the majestic bridges to discover on this loop hike. Called Sipapu, Kachina, and Owachomo to honor the native people who made this area their home centuries and millenia ago, these beautiful natural bridges, formed from Cedar Mesa sandstone, are some of the largest in the world. This trail offers viewpoints as well as allowing you to walk right beneath or beside them."
