Catching first light over Grand Canyon National Park. At 3,000 vertical feet above the Colorado River, the sheer drop from Toroweap Overlook offers a dramatic view of the Grand Canyon below. The volcanic cinder cones and lava flows in this ancestral home of the Southern Paiute people make this area unique. A visit to Toroweap provides an opportunity for an uncrowded, rustic and remote experience. Access is challenging and demands skill at negotiating difficult roadways.
