Grand Canyon Escalade: Wrong Development, Wrong Place

Escalade rendering

This development includes a 1.4-mile tramway that would shuttle up to 10,000 visitors a day to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, elevated walkway and riverside amphitheater, as well as a hotel, restaurant, and RV center above the rim. Learn more about what we're doing to stop it ›
