THE SKYWALK AT GRAND CANYON WEST: Enhance your experience with an optional stroll on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a unique glass bottom, cantilever bridge, resting 4,000 feet above the Colorado River. This architectural marvel weighs over 1.5 million pounds, and was built to withstand an excess of 71 million pounds in weight on top of it. Each of the 46 panes forming the walkway are constructed of 5-layers of glass bonded together and laminated, weighing in at 1,200 lbs a piece, and making the glass incredibly strong while still providing a crystal-clear view of the canyon below.
