Great stop along they way, beautiful!

This was a GREAT place to stop for a quick walk/hike and bathroom break. The views are just wonderful and it was really neat seeing the twin bridges.

I visited this spot around 5pm-6pm in mid April 2017, the colors were phenomenal. From the south side of the bridge facing north you are viewing the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in the background of the bridge. Very cool.

This bridge is really out of the way for probably the average person but our route was taking us almost exactly this way so we stopped to see it. On the west side, there is a place to stop and walk down to the bridge but it's not a clear path and especially with our dog, we felt a little... More

Stunning views of the Colorado river 500 ft below you. This engineering marvel, built in the 20's, is well worth the stop.

Historic Navajo Bridge spans the Colorado River, a formidable bridge span across a vast canyon. The contrast between the natural and built environment is awe inspiring as well as a convenience to bring both sides of the Colorado River community together. No tolls.

When we traveled to N Arizona last year we decided to take a side trip and visit the historic Navajo Bridge. There is a great view of the canyon and you can walk out on the old bridge which parallels the newer bridge. We had a great visit at the gift shop. Sometimes condors are seen there.

There are two bridges - The old one built in the 20's (Of the last century) and the new one completed in the 90's. The old bridge is now closed to traffic and is only for foot use,... More

I got to see my first California Condor there which was a big bonus. Sadly, it was Sunday, and I was unable to go inside the Navajo Interpretive Center, but it was a treat to walk across and look at the river below. This bridge used to be the only way to get to Utah, but was replaced when heavier... More

These are two of the highest bridges in the United States, with heights of 467 and 470 feet. The original bridge was built between 1927 and 1929 and remained in use until the... More

We came across this bridge by accident. We were looking at google maps to find a spot within a short distance from Page to take a look at the Colorado River and, hopefully, find a spot for some sunset photography. The bridge is actually found in Marble Canyon, which is 40 miles from Page (45 minutes) on the north eastern... More
