The views were beaughtiful, and there were Navajo Indians nearby selling jewlry and ceramics. But the official welcome center was over priced.

Passed by on the way to the North Rim, and it was a great way to start the trip. The views of the Colorado River are postcard worthy from this spot. Also the backdrop of the Canyon walls makes you feel like you're about to enter a very special place, and indeed you are :)

This is a very beautiful place. A quick stop for pictures. The gift shop was small but had lots of Navajo handmade jewelry

I wouldn't recommend you drive out just to see the bridge, but it is a nice place to stop if you're passing through. We left Horseshoe Bend & stopped on the way to the Grand Canyon's North Rim. There are some vendors there selling their wares, and the view from the bridge is spectacular.

I would recommend this as a good stop-off if you happen to be traveling to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, or to the Vermillion cliffs, or other places on the way. I wouldn't necessarily recommend going out of the way for this. The visitor center is just a gift shop. The Glen Canyon Dam overlook in Page is... More

This bridge provides access to the Arizona strip, a scenic portion of Arizona north of the Colorado River which has limited highway access. This is a nice place to stop and stretch your legs after you have been driving and/or riding in your vehicle for awhile. You can walk out onto the Old Navajo Bridge and take in the breath... More

Another special place in this amazing park. This bridge was so long and very sunny. It was very hot when we were there. And very high up so if you have height issues, this is not the place to stop. I took many pictures from the bridge.

There are 2 look-alike side by side Navajo bridges on US 89A. The new one (used since 1995) which we drive on to cross Colorado river and the old one (since 1929) where we can walk on and take photos of the beautiful river 142m down. The old bridge was built by early settlers to save hours of travelling around... More
