Arizona’s Grand Canyon is truly one of the marvels of the world. If you haven’t seen it for yourself, then you should change that as quickly as possible. And there is no better way to experience the marvel and grandeur of the Grand Canyon than to see it via the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

Exploring Skywalk

Located at Grand Canyon West, the Grand Canyon Skywalk gives you a truly exciting opportunity to stand an extraordinary 4000 feet above the Grand Canyon. The Skywalk is a horseshoe-shaped sidewalk that reaches out past the canyon at an impressive distance of 70 feet. The glass walkway is supported and outlined by a steel structure, which allows visitors to walk out, look down, and appreciate the staggering depths the canyon descends to.

You may feel a psychological need to walk carefully on the glass (many describe the feeling of walking on the glass as an incredible adrenaline rush), but the reality is that you don’t need to worry at all. The design of the structure is capable of supporting 70 million pounds.

Take in the awesome sight of the Colorado River below. If you peer down far enough, you’ll even be able to see river rafts floating along. You will also have the opportunity to see what many agree is one of the most beautiful portions of the Grand Canyon to behold. You’ll be able to see the famous Eagle Point rock formation, which is a rock formation that bears a striking resemblance to an eagle in the middle of flight with its wings outstretched.

Truly, this is one of the best ways to enjoy the splendor and scenery of the Grand Canyon.
