    Open Range Grazing

    Cattle and sheep are allowed to graze and there are not fences. So watch the road closely when going at 70 MPH. Stopping for them may not be an option if going too fast, and then what are your choices?

    Stop at the visitor center on the way out to answer any of nature's calls! It is a long, empty road between the monument and civilization, so take care of business before heading back...I can tell your from personal experience on this one.

  • Moki Dugway-gravel roads!

    by leannaaker Updated Jul 3, 2009

    If you are coming to Natural Bridges from the South in Arizona, beware that UT-261 (AKA, the "Moki Dugway") had 3 miles of graded gravel switchbacks (recommended 5mph). While this doesn't sound like a big deal (3 miles, no big deal, right?), you may think otherwise when you are sharing a one lane gravel road with no guard rail.

    Once you finish, it will be the story of a lifetime, but while you are doing it, it is scary! There are a couple of pullouts with breathtaking views, however.

    At Natural Bridges, we asked them if they carried "I survived the Moki Dugway" t-shirts. They laughed, but showed us a postcard showing the switchbacks on the road.
