It's great to stop here. You never know what color the river will have. I felt a brutal shake when a truck was going trough the bridge while I was taking my pictures. So be careful with the traffic, specially if you are traveling with kids. Enjoy the view.

After driving the stretch from either Flagstaff or Jacobs lake this is a nice place to just get out, let the dogs pee and stretch the legs....all while taking in the cool breeze from the Colorado River, that flows under the Navajo bridge, just below your feet and even further below the wings of the endangered California Condors flying above...

I don't know if it was because I was with my kids or if it was the wind but crossing this bridge it got me a little bit. I have climbed much higher cliffs than this but for some reason this really got to me and I had to get my kids off the bridge as soon as I could.... More

We did not know much about the place before we arrive. There is a parking lot on the north side of the bank. We walked through the bridge and visited the Navajo Bridge Interpretive Center on the south side of the bank. Unfortunately, the center was closed. But the short walk was worthwhile for the scenery and for the history... More

We were travelling from Grand Canyon to Salt Lake City, when we came across this unexpected surprise, on what was otherwise a very boring journey travelling in a 30 foot RV with my family "from Australia". This spot revealed the loneliness of remoteness but also the great engineering that went into building the original bridge. We found the tourist center... More

This was an unexpected surprise. The views here are fantastic and they look to have a great visitor center which also looks to be often or always closed. Certainly pull over and walk the bridge. Well worth it.

On our trip to Arizona, we left Page and drove to Flagstaff. We took a detour on highway 89 a with the sole purpose of seeing the Navajo bridges. There is a double set of bridges which cross the Colorado River. We walk across the bridges from one side to the other and back. It was a remarkable view of... More

Heading to Flagstaff from The Valley of Fire State Park in Vegas on hwy89a. The drive along the vermillion cliffs is gorgeos ( see my review of Vermillion Cliffs Scenic HwY). We stooped at the bridge to stretch the legs and take photos of the Colorado river and the marble canyon and the mountains. WOW! I wish we had time... More

This is where you can cross the Colorado River on foot. We walked across the old Navajo historical bridge and right at the middle soaked in the beautiful cliffs of Marble Canyon and the deep green river beneath. Totally awesome, very at peace with nature and kept wondering how did this bridge got build 80+ years ago.

It's great to see the two brigdes next to eachother. The water of the Colorado is running soooooooo deep below you ! The river looked quite rude and the water... More
