Grand Canyon West Rim with Optional Skywalk Ticket and Hoover Dam Photo Stop

539 reviews
Visit Grand Canyon West Rim with ease on a full-day tour from Las Vegas that starts with a hot breakfast at a restaurant and a photo stop at Hoover Dam (currently unavailable). Relax in your climate-controlled coach on the way to the West Rim, then take in Grand Canyon highlights like Skywalk (own expense), a Native American village, Guano Point, and Western Town. Seeing the Grand Canyon and Colorado River is worth the long drive, and this guided tour includes comfortable transport and two meals.

When fires closed the access to the north rim of the Grand Canyon we were forced to get creative. This is a dirt/gravel road for 61 miles. The road gets worse the last 13 miles and ridiculous the last 3 miles. In the last 3 miles you will need a 4WD with some ground clearance. Many reviews recommend "high clearance" without saying what that mean. We drove a Toyota Highlander with a 8.1" ground clearance. We did fine with some creative driving across the boulders. Some of the reviews said that they did the drive in vehicles with as little as 5.1" of ground clearance which I wouldn't suggest. Lastly, check the weather before you go. Don't go if rain is in the forecast, When you get the restroom at the end park there if you can find a space. Just kidding, you'll likely be the only ones there. We only encountered five cars on the 122 mile round trip. Anyhow leave your vehicle by the restroom stop. If you drive down to the picnic tables you will likely bottom out. Just look at the scrapes on the rocks. This is a far different experience than the crowded South and North Rims. Of approximately 6 million annual visitors to the Grand Canyon, only about 20,000 go to Toroweap (aka Tuweap). There are no railing, only nature in it's splendor.

I've been to both North Rim and South Rim, and I can say the views of the Grand Canyon are very different here. If you can imagine, a lot more straight down stuff to the river. You also get to see the lower end of the Colorado. The road out is truly an adventure. We rented a high-clearance Jeep and endured the long drive on washboard roads and the couple of miles of rocks and boulders at the end. DO NOT DRIVE A REGULAR CAR OUT HERE! In the end, the views were spectacular and the solitude was amazing...we were the only ones there. After drinking in the views, we sat under a tree at a picnic table and had a great lunch. My rating is based on the overall experience, and I really like adventures. This is not for everyone. If you don't like long drives on washboard, or if you're afraid of heights, try something else.

Rode our mountain bikes out there in January. Yup, it's the classic view of the river that you've seen on posters and calendars. Though the road out there is passable in good weather to within a few miles of the rim, it is a lot of washboard, much of it over sharp limestone cobbles that have high potential to do mayhem to your tires. Tip--just drive slower and your tires will be happier. We trashed a light SUV tire on a previous trip. The last 3-miles would be abusive to a low-clearance vehicle. If there is any significant rain, you can easily be trapped at a few spots between SR-389 and Toroweap. It can turn to very slick, deep mud after rain or snow and is a factor even in an AWD SUV. Camp area on the rim is delightful, if you can get a permit. Do Not consider the route down to Lava Falls. Unless you are truly experienced with other remote Grand Canyon backcountry routes, you'll put yourself in a dangerous situation. Loose, jagged lava scree the entire way makes the route a pain (it is not a "trail"). You'll be clamoring hands and feet most of the route ...and it is life-threateningly hot unless it's winter or nighttime. Dry spells during Winter are your best bet for visiting Toroweap. No crowds, no heat.

First of all, the last a mile to get ther is decent joy if anyone enjoy off-road experience. And I've seen no one until I leave even on Saturday with nice weather. The serenity with shock and awe scenery is indescribable. I got the habit of avoiding any crowd tourist destination at all cost since the outdoor acivity is my main task for my retirement. This can be the top choice and I am planning to go back again. Seeing is believing. But let's keep our nature as quite as possible and as it was.

This scenic off the path trip is well worth the time. If you want to see the Grand Canyon from a different view, this is the place. The road is dirt the whole way. The last 2 miles or so is rocky, craggy, scrape your small SUV road, but passable if you know how to drive around boulder. I took my motorcycle and had no problems. It is hot and has no real resources.
