Talking Hi,

Did not walk on the bridge but heard that they charge 75.00 dollars for the pleasure of scaring you.
Regards from Russell in sunny Tucson Az.

We were there a month ago, and were told by several people to skip the glass bridge. It's expensive, and your viewing time is limited. It's on private property (not a Park project).

So, we skipped it. There's plenty of other stuff to do in the Canyon.

I was in Las vegas for a wedding on 10/20/07 and took a plane flight over The Canyon on 10/22. The info I was given was the price ws $50.00 per person and we where able to see much more from the air at a price of $150.00 per.

And a great sight it was.
Don't think I would spend the $50.00 or what ever for just a few seconds of time and only one view.

Have not been, but read somewhere;

$75/person

And a long, bumpy, access road (to be paved in the future?) but currently NOT RV friendly...

I think I'd pass and just take a hike down.

We have visited the canyon several times. I have no interest in the glass bridge. We have hiked the canyon and flown over the canyon, but the best way to see the canyon is in a raft floating down the Colorado River. The trip is not cheap, but you can not put a price tag on a lifetime of memories.

Hiya, guys -

RE the float trip - Page and I took a day raft trip from the Hualapi Reservation at Peach Springs. We floated down to quiet water then they helicoptered us back up and then bused us back to the hotel. As I recall, it wasn't very expensive - great value for the cost.

Isn't there a new restaurant that spans the Grand Canyon that was built on Native American land?

I have seen the bride on TV recently and from what I saw, it's no big deal...really more of a cantilever with really thick glass floor panels set in a stainless steel support. It didn't look like it stretched out more than 50 foot or so and made a U-turn and came back. I honestly don't see spending that kind of money to walk out for a few minutes. Maybe they have other things you can do. But not if they cost extra than the $75.

Hmmm I'm getting the idea that the "glass bridge" idea isn't the way to go when visiting the Grand Canyon. Sounds like it's better to get down into the thick of things on the river or at least a trip into the canyon. Kind of what we were thinking! However, the river trips??? is that an option at our age???

The river trips from the Hualapi reservation is good for all ages - kids and grands. And since it is a day trip, there is no overnight camping, of course.

Still a great white water experience and the ride up in a helicopter is very exciting.

The trip leaves from the hotel at Peach Springs by bus down to the river.
