Navajo Bridge, Grand Canyon National Park

4.7
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Grand Canyon National Park
Spanning the scenic Marble Canyon, Navajo Bridge offers splendid views of the Colorado River cutting through the red-rock canyon. When the original structure opened in 1929 as the world's highest steel arch bridge, it eased access to this remote and rugged part of the country. Today, the new bridge, completed in 1995, serves vehicular traffic, while the old bridge remains open for pedestrians and equestrians only. The interpretive center on the west side provides information on the history and construction of the bridges, while on the east side you can buy Native American crafts.
