Hualapai Tribe opens new route to Grand Canyon attraction

The Hualapai Tribe of Arizona has opened a new access route to the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

The tribe received permits to build the road on property overseen by the Bureau of Land Management. The route was open on Tuesday afternoon.

The tribe took action after a non-Indian rancher blocked access from his property to the only road that leads to the Skywalk.
