San Juan County, which includes Natural Bridges National Monument, is in medium community level transmission. Therefore, wearing a mask in federal buildings at Natural Bridges is optional.

In areas CDC identifies as high COVID-19 community level, masks are required for everyone in all NPS buildings, regardless of vaccination status. In most low and medium COVID-19 community level areas, masks are optional, but visitors should follow signs and instructions from park staff and volunteers. Visitors and employees are always welcome to wear a mask if it makes them more comfortable.

Recreate Responsibly

When recreating, park visitors should maintain social distance and avoid high-risk outdoor activities. Please do not visit if you are sick or were recently exposed to COVID-19. Park staff 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.

  • Keep your distance.
    Give others plenty of room whether you are on a trail or in a parking lot.
  • Keep it with you.
    If you brought it, take it with you. Trash pickup and restroom facilities are limited in many park areas. Follow Leave No Trace principles.


You should recreate responsibly whenever you visit us, but please be prepared for changing temperatures and possible inclement weather this winter.

  • Plan activities before you arrive and be flexible. Plan to hike before earlier sunsets, or plan to stay late and hike at night.

  • Bring your water and sun protection. The air is still dry and the sun still strong.

  • Don't forget your layers! Weather can vary from below freezing to sunny and warm. Rain and snow are also possible.

  • Going other places? Be sure and check every destination for their current restrictions and requirements. Some destinations also close partially or fully in the winter months.

  • Stay parked at home and stay cozy. You can visit us virtually through our Facebook page and our website!

    Take a Hike!

    There's no better way to see a natural bridge than to walk through it. Take a walk on the trail and get up close with the bridges.
