Take a Grand Canyon West Rim Tour and Experience Fewer Crowds
By taking a Grand Canyon West Rim tour, you can visit the popular Skywalk. Built in 2007 by the Hualapai tribe, this open-air glass bridge extends 70 feet out from the edge of Eagle Point and provides views 4,000 feet down into the Canyon’s depths. Super strong and safe, the five-layered glass bridge measures ten feet wide and features walls four to six feet tall. Don’t worry about crossing the see-through connection, as it can hold a weight up to just over 70 million pounds.
Plan to visit the West Rim of the Canyon in the fall or spring. That way, you can avoid the crowds and experience a more temperate climate. Besides the Skywalk, you can see the following sites as well:
- Eagle Point, and its amphitheatre and art and gift shop. (This location is home to the Skywalk too.)
- Guano Point, and the its guano mine. Guano, or bat manure, was mined for use as a fertilizer. See the historic tram that stretched, at one time, 8,800 feet over the canyon to the mine.
- Hualapai Ranch, and its cowboy entertainment.
