We'd say, 'Don't look down,' but that'd kind of be missing the point: Verticality is what put Toroweap Overlook on the map. Situated on the Grand Canyon's elevated north rim, it offers an unmatched view down a sheer 915-metre drop straight to the Colorado riverbed.
Widely known for cutting the Grand Canyon, the Colorado is one of the Southwest's most important rivers. Rising in the Colorado Rockies, it flows mostly southwest for almost 2,400 kilometres through 11 national parks including this one.
