Eagle Point, a popular stop in Grand Canyon West, is the site of the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk and a collection of traditional Native American dwellings, including Hualapai Ranch, a western-themed town that evokes the spirit of the old west through gun fights, cattle drives, cowboy games, and horseback rides.
One of the highlights of Eagle Point is the Skywalk, which provides some of the most astounding, unobstructed views of the Grand Canyon possible. The horseshoe-shaped glass-bottomed Skywalk juts over a side of the Grand Canyon, suspended 70 feet/21 meters beyond the west rim and 4,000 feet/1,200 meters above the Colorado River. From Eagle Point you can take the 8-mile/12-kilometer trek to the Supai Village. A trail from Hualapai Hilltop drops steeply through a starkly beautiful landscape. Once you reach the village, you’ll find a café, general store, and a post office.

Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable and friendly driver, John.
Since time of pick up, this adventure was absolutely breath taking. Everyone was so friendly and the views are amazing!
I simply wished that it could never end. My first time to Gran Canyon, first time on a touristic plane, first time on a chopper. Just great !
To get to Eagle Point, take Highway 93 to the Diamond Bar Road, which takes you to the the Point and the Grand Canyon Skywalk. The Skywalk remains open in rain and snow conditions, though in these cases carpeting is installed for safety. These mats do not obscure any visibility. The Skywalk Café serves buffalo burgers and vegetarian fare.
