Phased Increase in Recreational Access

The National Park Service (NPS) is working servicewide with federal, state, and local public health authorities to closely monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and using a phased approach to increase access on a park-by-park basis. The following facilities and services are OPEN:

  • Natural Bridges' roads, trails, campground, and restrooms are open.
  • The park bookstore operated by Canyonlands Natural History Association is closed for the winter.
  • As weather and staffing allow, rangers provide visitor assistance outside the visitor center 9 am–noon and 2–4 pm, Thursday through Monday.

Natural Bridges Visitor Center interior exhibits remain CLOSED to public access until future notice.

When recreating, please follow local area health orders, practice Leave No Trace principles, and avoid crowding and high-risk outdoor activities.

The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
