Eagle Point, a popular stop in Grand Canyon West, is the site of a Native American village, amphitheater, and the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk—a horseshoe-shaped glass bridge that extends 70 feet (21 meters) over the canyon for views of the Colorado River 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) below.
The Grand Canyon Skywalk at Eagle Point is the most popular attraction in Grand Canyon West. The glass-bottom walkway provides thrilling bird’s-eye views of the canyon, one of the world’s Seven Natural Wonders. Combine entrance to the Skywalk with several other Grand Canyon West activities—take a helicopter tour over the canyon, ride a boat along the Colorado River, or watch a cultural performance at the Hualapai Native American Village at Eagle Point.
