Tuweep Area Day Use Tickets

Grand Canyon National Park

The Tuweep area of Grand Canyon National Park is remote and getting there is challenging. There is no water, gas, food, lodging, Wi-Fi, or cell service. Each vehicle or motorcycle entering Tuweep, all park areas within Toroweap Valley and on the Kanab Plateau, needs: (1) Day Permit or Backcountry Permit, (2) Park Pass (America the Beautiful), (3) Photo ID & Highway License Plate. These are not available on site and must be purchased prior to trip.

The ancestral home of the Southern Paiute people, "Tuweep" refers to the broad volcanic valley and surrounding western park lands. Today, based on an extensive public process, the area is managed for an uncrowded, rustic, wilderness experience dominated by nature and solitude. In 1995, public comment led to the development of a park general management plan outlining an entry reservation system for Tuweep.  

Toroweap Overlook offers a dramatic view of the Colorado River with a sheer drop of 3,000 vertical feet (915 m). Go to the edge for a breathtaking view. Explore the slickrock and admire the native plants. But watch your step – fragile biological soil crusts abound! 

Getting there is challenging and requires skill at negotiating high-clearance dirt roads from St. George, Utah, or Fredonia, Ariz. Summer brings torrential rain and lightning. Winter includes rain, snow, and freezing temperatures. Be flexible and prepared for rapidly changing conditions!
