Description:

Literally "walk the sky" at this glass bridge (which is more like a glass peninsula) that dangles over the edge of the canyon like a giant, clear diving board. Experience the canyon like a soaring eagle: 4,000 feet above the Colorado River, the Skywalk opened in 2007 and is owned and operated by the Hualapaii Tribe. The fee is $30 per person and no personal belongings, including cameras, are allowed on the bridge. This is to prevent items from falling into the canyon or onto the glass. From the South Rim, head south on AZ-64 for 56 miles. Then go west on I-40 to Kingman for 116 miles. Then head north on Stockton Hill Road for 42 miles and turn right (North) on to Pierce Ferry Road. After 7 miles, turn right (east) onto Diamond Bar Road. After 21 miles, the signs will be obvious. South on US-93 toward Phoenix 32 miles Go over Hoover Dam and continue South on US-93 40 miles Left turn (North) on to Pierce Ferry Road 28 miles Right turn (East) on to Diamond Bar Road 21 miles **Diamond Bar Road will end at the only entrance to Grand Canyon West, which is the Grand Canyon West Airport.
