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.

I would have given it five stars if it wasn't in the middle of nowhere with such a brutal road to get there. It was awesome. I would like to go back and hike to Lava Falls.

Toroweap is about a 2 hours drive off the main road, it is an EXTREMELY rough road which should only be navigated by a high riding 4x4. However, it is the highest point in the Canyon ans the view of the river is spectacular!

Grand Canyon's Toroweap is the most hidden beautiful view from the North Rim. It's located in the Arizona Strip, an isolated region of northwestern Arizona along the North Rim of the western Grand Canyon.

In January of 2015 my daughter and I ventured out to Toroweap/Tuweep. The road is long but it was in great shape until the last 5 miles or so, then it becomes very rough. You would want a vehicle with decent ground clearance. The views are amazing. Avoid this road with the anticipation of any rain. I want to go... More

I only have to fill up the space of this review box, just because of the regulations. Other than that, the only word that can describe the magic of this natural monument is just STUNNING! We are lucky they still haven't paved the road that leads to this location, otherwise it would be swarming with people. The best view of... More

Toroweap has a fantastic, unique view of the Grand Canyon. The canyon is much narrower here than at the usual rim points that people visit, and the view is vertical right down to the river. It is reached by a 61 mile dirt road, the last part requiring a high clearance 4WD vehicle. I was with a small tour group... More

Toroweap is a beautiful place to visit, but as other reviews have stated, it is best to do this in a 4-wheel-drive, high-clearance vehicle. My wife and I successfully made the trek in a 2WD, 4 cylinder Kia Sorento. The higher clearance was our only salvation. It would have been a disaster otherwise. The first 57 miles seem like just...

Going to Toroweap in a Toyota Highlander is not recommended! We made it, but I was traumatized the entire last part of the trip. You drive over boulders. There's no other way to put it. My husband had been before and he kept saying "no problem," but trust me, you want 4-wheeled drive and high clearance. The road into the... More
