The contrast of viewing this man-made bridge structure against the walls of the immense canyon is marvelous. Wow! We didn't have time to drive down to the ferry crossing, but will be sure to do so next time! You must see this!

Here is a unique place to stop anytime and see how mother nature shows off her abilities. And of coarse there's no denying the man-made wonder of the bridges over this magnificent view! There's parking on each side of the bridge. There are also vendors...More

We watched that bridhe on our way to Antylop Canyon. Nice and colorful view - you may take really good pictures.

This is a beautiful pair of steel arch bridges worth a stop to check out. Amazing views up and down the Colorado River. Also a great spot to look for California Condors which actually went extinct in 1987 but were reintroduced in this part of...More

I would not recommend this as a destination, but if you cross it on your way to the North Rim (and you WILL cross it unless you are coming from Utah), then you must stop. The old bridge was an engineering first in its day,...More

It's recommended to make a short stop near the Navajo Bridge where you can walk on the old bridge and view the new one, have a very beautiful view of Marble Canyon and Colorado River.

An interesting (and EASY!) stop on the way to Vermillion Cliffs...and eventually the Grand Canyon. If you are a photographer, you can spend a lot of time at this location, waiting for the sun and clouds to play “just right” on the rocks, bridge and...More

Won't take long to visit, it is on the main road just passed Marble Canyon on the US89A so easy stop to get out and take a picture of the bridges.

The views you'll get looking to the North of Navajo Bridge are pretty amazing. As a person with a pathological fear of both heights and dropping an expensive item into the Colorado River, I still managed to take some decent pictures. The walk is about...More

I've been to the Navajo Bridge twice. The first time was before noon (around 10 a.m.) and I saw several condors. The second time was closer to late afternoon (around 4:00 p.m.) and I did not see any.
