Where are we going today?

Natural Bridges preserves some of the finest examples of natural stone architecture in the southwest. On a tree-covered mesa next to deep sandstone canyons, three natural bridges formed when meandering streams slowly cut through the canyon walls. In honor of the Native Americans that made this area their home, the bridges are named "Kachina," "Owachomo" and "Sipapu."

    More like a one lane driveway with a paved parking lot in a field. Take a hike. The old built trail is closed so the new trail follows a deer path meandering over hill and dale. The Natural Bridge about a half mile away is impressive and includes a cool (chilly) cave formation that Indians used to store their beer......or what have you. The bathrooms are in good order. The trail from the parking lot is still grass covered, so don't expect Devils Lake style crowds.

    This is not a huge park but has a few short trails with signage relating to Native American usage of the various plants, shrubs and trees. The Natural Bridge is worth the walk of .3 miles. The trail continues past the Bridge and ends in a beautiful overlook.

    There is a map on the little shelter in the glass. It's kind of an old map because it took us around a bit more bit it did the job. It took us only 5-7 minutes to get to the beautiful natural bridge. There are bathrooms there.

    Small park, but the natural bridge is cool. The only frustrating thing was the signage: it is cryptic at best, absent at worst.
