Skywalk at Grand Canyon

To many the 7 mile gravel road trip into Skywalk at Grand Canyon and the “tourist trap” price factor prevent them from enjoying this facility.

Worth remembering is that the Skywalk is managed and contributes to the Hualapai Tribe who are the traditional owners of this land. Than any trip to the grand Canyon is worth a trip out here simply as a sign of respect to the traditional owners. This acknowledgement can also make for a more grounded Grand Canyon experience and set you off on the right path. As you set out the walk of 21 metres (70ft) around the horseshoe shaped walk consider the Hualapai, meaning “People of The Tall Pines,” people who have walked these lands right up to the San Francisco Mountains for generations.
