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

"A Place of terrifying beauty," is what our acrophobic guide said and he was right. We visited it in July and that the low humidity made the heat quite comfortable. The roads are as rugged as advertised (NPS estimates 1 in 4 cars gets 1 or more flats getting here and a tow costs $1000 to $2000 so be prepared).... More

Staying in Kanab and planned a day trip here. Hired a Jeep through Expresscarrentals in Kanab as I guessed the standard Full size rental wouldn't cope. How right I was, the 4WD jeep with huge clearance was just the job-still a teeth jarring journey, with plenty of sand and rocks over those last three miles. Parked literally on the edge... More

This is the most spectacular place in the world's most spectacular place. It's at the end of a 63 mile dirt road, but the journey is certainly worth destination. We sat on the edge drinking a 6-pack and eating crackers for dinner. Forever memorable!! Next day, we hiked to Lava Falls. (Don't get me started on that one!!!)
