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

First I’d like to say, we took the St. George road in....Good road (I believe a Car could make it. We took the Fediona road out, even easier! 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...

I go to Toroweap 2x a year to get filled back up with its stark, death defying beauty and danger. This is NOT the commercial Grand Canyon overlook as you have seen it on the South Rim. This one is well off the beaten path. All the more reason to go and experience it for yourself. The views cannot be... More

Toroweap: I recently took my third trip to this most awesome, precipitous canyon rim in the American Southwest. I just wanted to go again, making the excuse to myself that I may not have photographed it from every vantage point, or in every light, or in a variety of weathers. If you have ever stood out on the Visor on... More

Have you ever thought about volunteering with the National Park Service? If so, check out volunteer.gov for tons of opportunities. I just finished a week helping the Grand Canyon National Park Service Vegetation Crew removing Invasive Plants -- yup pulling weeds, putting cairns (piles of rocks) on hiking trails, cleaning up campsites, checking fences outlining the park for cuts, etc....

If you are trying to visit the North Rim of the Grand canyon the regular North Rim road closes after the first snowfall usually in November and does not open until May. That being said this is a great way to get Grand Canyon views if you have a vehicle that can handle the off road. If you start from... More

We planned 2 years for this spot! Finally, we got our lovely Subaru Outback and headed for Toroweap. You got to have a 4WD & High clearance vehicle to get here. The dirt road took us 2 hours to get to the camp ground. Much faster than we expected. The first 40 miles is easy if you have the right... More
