Owner description: Grand Canyon Resort Corporation is owned by the Hualapai Indian Tribe and is located in Peach Springs, Arizona. In 1988, the Hualapai Indian Tribe, which has occupied the land since 1883, established GCRC, welcoming millions of visitors each year to tour the area, including the nearby lodge, ranch, River Runners and Grand Canyon West. To further increase tourism in the area, the Grand Canyon Skywalk was built in 2007. The Skywalk is a glass, horseshoe-shaped bridge that enables visitors to walk beyond the canyon walls at Grand Canyon West, suspending them 4,000 feet above the riverbed and providing an unparalleled view of this natural wonder.

“Amazingly friendly and helpful staff”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

My friends and I visited Grand Canyon West and were pleasantly surprised not only by the overall awesomeness of the Skywalk and Grand Canyon, we were very pleased with how friendly and helpful all of the staff were. And when we got a flat tire in our brand new rental car, which didn't have a spare tire just a compressor that didn't work very well, we were happy to be aided by one of the staff who just happened to drive by on his way home and stopped to help us. He not only helped with the tire, he followed us to the Hualapai Ranch to make sure we made it all the way and had called ahead to make sure we could still have some dinner and possibly a cabin for the evening. When we arrived safely at the ranch, with our tire almost flat again, we were greeted by Michelle, who made sure we had everything we needed for a great barbecue meal and who got Patrick, who entertained us around the campfire and set us up with rooms for the night! We woke up in the morning to a great breakfast and one of the maintenance men came and patched our tire so we could leave! Needless to say, these folks were all our heroes! It was a real adventure for us. Our only complaint was the BLM road leading up to the Hualapai Reservation. Thanks for the memories!

“Great trip”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Great views and lots of facilities. if going to Vegas or Arizona, go to the Grand Canyon. Plus it's the closest rim to Vegas.

“40th Birthday Trip”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

well worth the visit to the West Rim, you can see how the tribes lived in this area, beautiful views, and the buses are continuously running every 5 minutes, you can even take a trail and explore a bit of the canyon

“Great Views - Good Day Trip from Las Vegas”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

The actual Skywalk is an OK thing to do, but the whole Hualapai park is the real reason to come to this location. When we were there in March it was uncrowded, it offers phenomenal views of the canyon, and it is a feasible to do this as a day trip from Las Vegas. In contrast, I think that day trips would be difficult to do from Las Vegas for the North or South rim national parks. On the downside, the area is not very developed, and there are not a lot of amenities there. Unlike the South Rim National Park, there are no railings to keep people from falling over the edge, there are no hotels, there is no hiking from here into the canyon, the dining options are limited, and you need to drive about 20 minutes on a well maintained dirt road to get there. At the park there is a fake Old West town, an airport, several restaurants, and several stores which sell Indian jewelry, art, and t-shirts. The Skywalk itself was worthwhile more for the view of the canyon that you get than the intended thrill you are supposed to get by walking out on a glass floor several thousand feet above the canyon floor. Near the Skywalk you can walk out to a promontory that juts out into the canyon, on a trail that is about 30 feet wide with 1000 foot drop-offs on either side, again with awesome views in different directions. Another feature that I liked is that there were Native American hosts, in native dress, that talked to us about their tribe and how their ancestors lived.
