Eagle Point got its name from the rock formation of the Canyon that resembles the shape of an eagle with both wings spreading out. Another main attraction on this side of the canyon beside the beautiful scenery of the canyon  is the skywalk. The skywalk is a horseshoe like glass bridge that extended outward on top the canyon which was opened in 2007. Walking on the bridge, one can observed the Colorado river right under their feet.
