Famous Viewpoints of West Rim:
The cliffs of the Grand Canyon West Rim can be likened to wood chopping, but elevated to a terraforming scale. You can almost make out where the axe falls from the gash-like swaths of seemingly bottomless valley. The most prominent of such is eagle-shaped and how Eagle Point came to be named. According to traditional Hualapai oral legend, the ancient locals lived in the valley totally unaware of the impending flash flood. The Great Creator then sent a divine eagle to warn them of the flood, and the messenger perched atop the cliff and merged with the rock into the form it is today. Another interesting tidbit of information is that bald eagles are a common sight around there; it is as if they have been silently standing vigil over this land all these hundred millennia.
Located at a great bend in the Grand Canyon, Guano Point’s summit requires a relatively long hike on loose gravel. Once it’s reached however, you are treated to a 3600 panoramic vantage point of the entire West Rim that stands on a high slope. The view overlooks the calm flow of the Colorado River deep in the North sandwiched by towering multi-layered canyon wall. Beyond even that, the river can be followed by sight into the distant cluster of mountain ranges covered by clouds with shifting color hues brought on by the sunset. All these elements combine to form a surreal dreamscape that needs to be seen to believe! To the East is where the aforementioned bend turns and where you get a front-seat view of the emanated overwhelming majestic sight of the canyon. It is without a doubt that this vantage point has the best view in all of the West Rim.
West Rim Attractions:
Experience the incredible and unique Skywalk bridge, an attraction like no other. This state-of-the art open-air glass walkway is an architectural marvel which extends 70 feet from the cliff of Eagle Point rim and hangs over the edge, 4000 feet above the canyon floor. Built by the Hualapai Tribe at the Canyon's West Rim, the Skywalk provide you a stunning new perspective, allowing “720-degree” breathtaking views of one of nature's most fantastic displays.
