The visitors' center was worth the stop! We were able to see the bridge, with its support system, while reading the interesting story of how the bridge was built. The young lady at the gift shop was very pleasant and informative. And, the restrooms were very clean and well maintained.

This was an unexpected treat with a great view of the Colorado River beneath the walking bridge. The only down side are that the restrooms are pit toilets with no water.

This is an interesting stop in the Marble Canyon area. It is often a hangout for CA Condors, so keep a look out. There are 2 bridges, the old one is now the pedestrian bridge. The info on the plaques is interesting. The views of the Colorado river are great. You will often see rafting trips below you. Take the... More

I loved this place from the first time I saw it - the bridge is so elegant and surroundings are so nice! In spring the water was emerald green, this time in August it was muddy, but still the views are nice. But this time we were lucky to spot three California condors in a really close proximity - ##02,... More

If you're taking highway 89 south from Utah to Arizona, you're probably going to go via Page, AZ and see the Glenn Canyon Dam. That's a nice trip, but if you've seen it before consider leaving Highway 89 at Kanab, UT and instead taking 89A (Alternate). You'll bypass Page and the Glenn Canyon Dam, but you will see some of...

Impressive engineering, magnificent view of the Vermillon Cliffs around it, and the brown pulsing Colorado River below.

If traveling from the south to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon you should make a short stop to learn the history of the old and new Navajo Bridges. There is also a small museum here. You can walk across the Colorado River on the old Navajo Bridge. This is a good spot to stretch your legs.

On highway 89 traveling to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in the middle of nowhere, you come upon a beautiful sigh to see. Here, spanning the Colorado River is something that almost looks out of place. But you stop and see what a magnificent structure this bridge really is. The view down to the river is great. The...

We stopped for this attraction and walked out on the bridge to get a good view of the canyon and river. Didn't stay long and did not go to the museum/cultural center, but it was worth the stop for the view and photos.
