||Natural BridgesTo the Paiutes, they’re Ma- Vah- Talk- Tump, meaning under the horse’s belly. We know them as Natural Bridges.In 1883 the world’s largest natural bridges were discovered by Cass Hite. In 1904 National Geographic photographed and publicized the area; four years later, Theodore Roosevelt made them a national monument.
Natural Bridges National Monument is located right off Hwy 95; to see all three bridges, follow Bridge View Drive, which features pullouts and short walks to overlook points.
The last bridge is actually the easiest one to reach. It’s known as Owachomo and requires only a short, easy hike. The other two bridges take longer; plan a full half- day to hike to all three.
Natural Bridges does have its own campground, but space is very limited.
