Natural Bridges

Where the amazing force of water has cut three spectacular natural bridges in White Canyon, is Natural Bridges National Monument, located 42 miles west of Blanding or 47 miles north of Mexican Hat. The bridges have Hopi Indian names: delicate Owachomo means ‘rock mounds', massive Kachina means ‘dancer', while Sipapu, the second largest natural bridge in the world, means ‘place of emergence'. A nine-mile scenic drive has overlooks of the bridges, canyons and ancient Puebloan ruins. Moderate to difficult trails, some with metal stairs, lead down to each bridge. A longer trail follows the stream bed beneath all three bridges.

In 2007 the park was named the first "Dark Sky Park" due to its dedication to zero light pollution. The park's visitor center, exhibits, and campground are open year-round.
