Activities with pets are very limited at Natural Bridges. You may not have your pet with you on any hiking trails. You may have your pet with you in the campground, and at overlooks and pullouts along the paved scenic drives. You may walk your pet on roads or in parking lots, but must you must have them on a leash at all times when outside a vehicle.


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 temperatures are above 68 degrees, even with the windows cracked.
