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.

This place was recommended to us by a couple we met on a previous road trip. It was a challenging but worthwhile 60 mile drive down a dirt road. The last 3 miles were very slow, driving over rocks, through water and ruts. The view...More

Toroweap Overlook is, in my opinion, one of the most amazing places on earth!! I have run the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon close to 30 times. I have hiked dozens of side canyons, and visited the South and North Rims of "The Ditch".......However,...More

I hire a guide from Dreamland Safari Tour, as the road to go there is 61 miles of unpaved rough road and the last miles mostly on rock. So it is very hard to drive over there. Very remote area. But the overlook very stunning....More

Preparation and abundant ground clearance vehicle required. The last 3 miles are no joke, either you have the right vehicle or you are hiking in and out. Start early with a full tank of gas from St George as over 140 miles r/t of gravel...More

Toroweap has been on my must see list. I booked a tour with Dreamland Safari Tours as my compact rental car wouldn't make the drive. The view is amazing. So glad I was able to experience this!

Closest town is Fredonia, AZ. Not sure about hiring a 4x4 from this location though - it's a very small town. Next town past that is Kanab, UT. Might have better luck there. Your other option is to rent a Razor and drive... More

Why is Skywalk #4? (4 Replies)
Looking at Tripadvisor list of "top GCNP attractions" 1 Grand Canyon 2 Grand Canyon North Rim 3 Bright Angel Trail 4 Skywalk 5 Grand Canyon South Rim 6 South Kaibab Trail 7 Havasu Canyon 8 Toroweap Point 9 Maricopa Point 10 Tusayan Ruins and Museum I was looking at the Skywalk reviews and none of them are above a 3, yet the South RIm is listed at #5 and has a ton of 5 star reviews. Am I missing something here?

Good question. Actually #5 is the same as #1.
Toroweap point (2 Replies)
I'm kind of bewitched just looking at pictures of Toroweap Point. We're staying at the Lodge on the North Rim in June and I'm thinking about going to this desolate spot. How long would it take us by car (a SUV) to reach it? The best route seems to be via Fredonia. If possible, after visiting Toroweap Point, I'd like to reach St-George on the same day. Will it stay a dream or can it become reality?

Toroweap/Tuweep is a spectacular sight. See my post in another thread: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g143057-i1449-k579… Doing it as a daytrip starting at the North Rim and ending in St. George would be a looong day. But it is possible. Toroweap is best enjoyed as a overnighter.
