AAA Editor Notes

Tuweep Area is in the n.w. corner, via SR 389 and a 60-mile dirt road west of Fredonia. Also known as Toroweap, the remote area embraces 40 miles of the Grand Canyon between Kanab Creek and the Uinkaret Mountains. Toroweap Overlook offers exceptional views of the Grand Canyon's inner gorge and of Lava Falls rapids. Vulcans Throne, a cinder cone, is on the Esplanade just west of Toroweap Overlook. Note: Due to a lack of accommodations, the trip should not be attempted without adequate preparation and equipment. Water, gasoline and camping supplies are not available. Limited camping is offered south of the Tuweep Ranger Station; electricity and water are not available. The 60-mile dirt road is impassable when wet. A high-clearance, four-wheel-drive vehicle is required.
