This bridge was a pleasant surprise as we were just driving by and decided to stop. We enjoyed the walk across the long bridge and loved the view of the amazing cliffs and emerald colored river. The visitors center was closed, which was disappointing as we would have liked to learn more. A great place to get out and stretch our legs!

The Navajo Bridge spans the Colorado River at Marble Canyon on the drive from the South Rim to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Take time to stop! It is actually a pedestrian bridge adjacent to the more modern one you will cross on 89A. There is a Navajo visitor center with some very interesting informations about the history of the Navajo nation, art, maps and books for sale as well as knowledgeable clerks who are just looking for someone to have a conversation. The walk across the bridge gives you a true sense of its height and the challenges that went it to building it in 1928-29. You can see trout stirring silt in the river below if you look closely (and patiently with binoculars) and you may encounter a California Condor on the cliffs below the bridge as we did. On the otherside, Navajo traders offer personal arts, crafts, jewelry and conversation.

Due to construction we had to take 89A and came upon 2 seemingly identical spans. One for pedestrian traffic & the other for cars.The bridge carries you across Marble Canyon & is 470 feet above the Colorado River, the pedestrian bridge is the one built in 1929, safe for people not for cars. There is a visitor center & restrooms but both were CLOSED due to the gov't shutdown (boo hiss). Cool place to stop & take pics & it's FREE.Hold on to your hat, it gets windy out on the bridge!

The drive between the two rims of the Grand Canyon is a long one and this bridge was a much needed distraction. I love photographing bridges and this was one of my all time favorites. It's like seeing double because there is an identical bridge for walking and driving. It's like seeing double and both are architecturally gorgeous.
