“Worth a stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

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.

“Bridge over Troubled Waters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

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 view across the bridge is great. The view anywhere is great. You must go into the visitor center and learn all about the hows and whys of this beautiful bridge. The colors of the Vermillion Cliffs are not too bad either!

“Nice stop on a long trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

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.
