I got to see my first California Condor there which was a big bonus. Sadly, it was Sunday, and I was unable to go inside the Navajo Interpretive Center, but it was a treat to walk across and look at the river below. This bridge used to be the only way to get to Utah, but was replaced when heavier... More

Located on US-89A between Page, Arizona and the Grand Canyon's North Rim, this site is home to two magnificent bridges spanning the Colorado River in Marble Canyon. These are two of the highest bridges in the United States, with heights of 467 and 470 feet. The original bridge was built between 1927 and 1929 and remained in use until the... More

We came across this bridge by accident. We were looking at google maps to find a spot within a short distance from Page to take a look at the Colorado River and, hopefully, find a spot for some sunset photography. The bridge is actually found in Marble Canyon, which is 40 miles from Page (45 minutes) on the north eastern... More

About 45 minutes from Page on excellent, scenic roads. If you have the time, worth a stop, but don't be upset if you have to pass it by. High above the Colorado River, the 'older' bridge looks to the newer one and the cliffs of Marble Canyon.

Not a really popular place but it is worth to stop by if you are in Page AZ. You can see the Colorado river and close view of the canyon. The bridge is beautiful.

Navajo bridge is located on Highway 89 as it crosses the Colorado River at Marble Canyon, AZ. There are two bridges here, the one on which traffic crosses and the historic one which has been re-purposed as a foot bridge. On the north side of the bridge is an Arizona state rest area. This rest area is where most people... More

We made a side trip to Marble Canyon hoping to see an endangered California Condor. There were 10 of them flying around and landing on the bridge! Well worth the few extra miles if you are in the Page, AZ area.

Great view from the bridge. We were fortunate to see two of the condors in flight briefly. There is a visitors center with nice postcards.

This bridge offers great views, especially of the California condors that like to hang out in the struts under the bridge. We got some great pictures, including of the condor in flight following the river below us. Nice place to stretch your legs, use the restroom, etc.

We actually stopped here twice in one week, coming and going from Jacob's Lake. The bridge and visitor center are very interesting. The picnic ramada built by the CCC was pretty amazing. We also saw condors on both visits; two on the first day, one on the second. The attendant in the visitor center was very helpful and informative. We... More
