Natural Bridges Full Loop

This trail gives you the full Natural Bridges experience with views of the monument’s three large sandstone bridges: Kachina, Owachomo and Sipapu Bridges, named after Native Americans who once resided in the area.

The trailhead begins atop Cedar Mesa and then drops down into the canyons where you’ll meander through rock art panels and Pueblo ancestral ruins. This trail is primitive and moderate to slightly strenuous. Stop at the visitor center for updated conditions and detailed directions. Don’t forget to bring plenty of water.
