Acrophobes may want to avoid this overlook, on the remote part of the North Rim, which provides awesome Canyon views from sheer cliffs nearly 3,000 feet high above the Colorado River.

In January of 2015 my daughter and I ventured out to Toroweap/Tuweep. The road is long but it was in great shape until the last 5 miles or so, then it becomes very rough. You would want a vehicle with decent ground clearance. The views are amazing. Avoid this road with the anticipation of any rain. I want to go... More

I only have to fill up the space of this review box, just because of the regulations. Other than that, the only word that can describe the magic of this natural monument is just STUNNING! We are lucky they still haven't paved the road that leads to this location, otherwise it would be swarming with people. The best view of... More

Toroweap has a fantastic, unique view of the Grand Canyon. The canyon is much narrower here than at the usual rim points that people visit, and the view is vertical right down to the river. It is reached by a 61 mile dirt road, the last part requiring a high clearance 4WD vehicle. I was with a small tour group... More

Toroweap is a beautiful place to visit, but as other reviews have stated, it is best to do this in a 4-wheel-drive, high-clearance vehicle. My wife and I successfully made the trek in a 2WD, 4 cylinder Kia Sorento. The higher clearance was our only salvation. It would have been a disaster otherwise. The first 57 miles seem like just...

Going to Toroweap in a Toyota Highlander is not recommended! We made it, but I was traumatized the entire last part of the trip. You drive over boulders. There's no other way to put it. My husband had been before and he kept saying "no problem," but trust me, you want 4-wheeled drive and high clearance. The road into the... More

Toroweap Point is worth the drive of 60+ miles on gravel (if it is dry) and mud if it rains. We enjoyed sunny blue skies on the way in, camped two nights and drove on mud, mud and more mud on the way out. You most definitely want a vehicle with four wheel drive in case it rains. You can... More

Forget all the negative reviews and go for it - IF YOU CAN SPEND AT LEAST A FEW HOURS WITHOUT TALKING AND JUST LOOKING !!!!!!!!!!!!!! No problem coming in with a car but you will have to walk the last 2-3 miles. I strongly suggest taking route 109 (Mt Turnbull Rd) between Fredonia and Colorado City. If weather has been... More

Dreamland Safari Tours out of Kanab, UT do a great job! Went out to Toroweap with them a few days ago and they deliver on everything they commit to. Great dinner and breakfast and very knowledgable of Toroweap and the southwest overall.Highly recommended! Cheers to Will, Don, and Meghann

This location is advertised as one of the most isolated and remote locations. Tell that to the dozens of vehicles I saw going up and down Mt Turnbull road...kicking up clouds of dust in the process. There is even a chemical toilet at the overlook! I have seen better views at the south rim and the north rim. Be warned... More
