Deaf/Hearing Loss Accessibility
For visitors with hearing impairments, a variety of publications may be obtained at the visitor center. The audio-visual program has closed captioning available upon request. Wayside exhibits with illustrations and text on natural and cultural features are situated throughout the park and in the visitor center.
Blind/Low Vision Accessibility
Ask for large-print and braille publications at the visitor center. Large print and braille versions of the official Hovenweep Unigrid are available at visitor centers, by contacting the park, or downloading a copy in a Braille Ready Format (BRF).
Service animals are allowed in national parks. What is a service animal?
Service animals are welcome at Natural Bridges Visitor Center, on all park trails, and in the backcountry. We recommend you identify your working service animal, such as with a vest. Identification is not required, but helps prevent unwarranted "dog on trail" complaints from other visitors. There are no plastic bags provided at trailheads for waste products, so please bring your own.
Caution! The desert can be deadly for pets. Car temperatures rise quickly in the sun, even on cool days. Your pet can easily die of heat exhaustion. If you are leaving a pet in a car, crack the windows as much as possible and leave water to drink. We recommend you not leave pets in the car at all when the outside temperature exceeds 68ºF (20ºC), even with the windows cracked.
