Tuweep Area Day Use Tickets

Grand Canyon National Park

The Tuweep area of Grand Canyon National Park is remote and access is challenging – there are no services. This area includes all park areas within Toroweap Valley and on the Kanab Plateau. Each vehicle or motorcycle entering the park needs two items in advance for their trip: (1) a Day Use Ticket or Overnight Use Backcountry Permit and (2) valid Park Pass or Site Pass. The Day Use Ticket includes a $2 non-refundable fee. There is no water, gas, food, lodging, Wi-Fi, or cell service within the Tuweep area. 

The ancestral home of the Southern Paiute people, "Tuweep" refers to Grand Canyon National Park’s 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 the Tuweep area to mitigate (1) vehicle congestion diminishing access, (2) degradation of area features, and (3) impacts to safety and visitor experience. Visitation has since grown nearly 300%.  

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! Upon leaving, enjoy icons like the historic road grader and ponder the resourceful nature of those who lived here before. 

Access to the remote and rugged Tuweep area is challenging, demanding skill at negotiating difficult, high-clearance, dirt roadways from St. George, Utah, or Fredonia, Ariz. Summer brings torrential rain and lightning. Winter includes rain, snow, and freezing temperatures. Be prepared for rapidly changing conditions!
