We just got back from a day trip to the overlook and it is truly a spectacular view. Scary to be so close to the edge but worth belly crawling to the edge if you need to in order to see the canyon from this perspective. I laughed when I read the review chastising those that are concerned about the... More

Toroweap is the most isolated and hardest spot to get to on the Grand Canyon. It is a three hour drive from Fredonia, AZ with no services. There is a bad dirt trail 61 miles to get there. There is a wonderful overlook there with a narrow george for the canyon and a drop of 3000 feet to the Colorado... More

Toroweap Overlook in the Tuweep District of Grand Canyon National Park is not the same as Toroweap Point. Reviews for Toroweap Overlook are listed under Toroweap Point. The point is located on the plateau above and to the north of the overlook. The overlook is located directly above the Colorado River. That being said, Toroweap Overlook is a 5 star... More

On the Toroweep viewpoint of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon you can look down almost three thousand feet of narrow canyon walls to the Colorado River below. The view is long and spectacular due to the incredible feeling of height caused by the sudden broad drop-off. Like much of the Grand Canyon the colors are impressive. But if... More

In terms of access I agree the roads to the ranger station would be passable by most cars assuming dry roads and no concerns about weather conditions. The ride past that was very rough and I was in a high clearance 4X4 - personally I wouldn't risk it without this. If you get stuck or have something break the area... More

We made the 1-2 hour long drive down a dirt road, with 4WD necessary toward the end. It was a bumpy ride, but the destination was unforgettable. The views were literally breathtaking. It was the most dramatic views of the canyon without all of the touristy feels or crowds. We arrived in time for sunset and pretty much had the... More

The ONLY Problem is form the Ranger's station to the Campsite (6 miles), You Definitely need a High Clearance vehicle (Some spots are too Rocky and deep holes for a car (Maybe... More

It was a long drive out there but definitely worth it. Don't be scared about the reviews regarding the road, I took my Subaru Impreza 2.5RS, which doesn't have great ground clearance, and made it far enough to walk to the campgrounds without scraping once. It helped to to have a spotter in a couple spots but mostly it was... More

To get there you have to take a long dirt road but when you get there the views are wonderful. You need a high clearance vehicle or you run the risk of damaging the vehicle. The last few miles of the road are the roughest. The campground has great (non-smelly) pit toilets. Plan on bringing plenty of water. There is... More

Awesome place...well worth the trip!! By reading the reviews you would think you needed a Humvee and 10 spare tires to drive this gravel road. C'mon people, it's not the road of bones across Siberia or Ruta 40 in Patagonia!! It's just a gravel road with a few rocks here or there....geez...
