Grand Canyon West

The Grand Canyon Skywalk
The Grand Canyon has been named one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The Grand Canyon is enormous, stretching to 277 miles in length and up to 18 miles in width.
Our Beautiful Visiting Places
It’s well over a mile deep in some places. It is so large that there are numerous places from which to view the Grand Canyon, including the Grand Canyon Skywalk on the west side.
The Grand Canyon Skywalk is a partial bridge out over the canyon, which has a transparent floor. This enables visitors to look down into the canyon while standing out over it.
The Skywalk is 4,770 feet above sea level, while the River below it is 1,160 feet above sea level. The vertical drop below the Skywalk goes down about 500 to 800 feet before hitting an outcropping of rock. That makes for quite the view.
