Create an itinerary including Navajo Bridge
Spanning the scenic Marble Canyon, Navajo Bridge offers splendid views of the Colorado River cutting through the red-rock canyon. When the original structure opened in 1929 as the world's highest steel arch bridge, it eased access to this remote and rugged part of the country. Today, the new bridge, completed in 1995, serves vehicular traffic, while the old bridge remains open for pedestrians and equestrians only. The interpretive center on the west side provides information on the history and construction of the bridges, while on the east side you can buy Native American crafts.

  • This was a beautiful stop! We saw 4 California Condors. It was such a neat experience. The bridge felt safe to walk across and the scenery was beautiful.

  • Saw 4 endangered California condors pirched under the bridge.
  • A great view without the crowds. A pleasant stop on the side of 89. I was driving up to Kanab, and couldn’t resist pulling over. The original bridge is a short walk over the Colorado river, complete with informative plaques. There’s also an air conditioned guest center with restrooms.
