There is a 3,000 foot vertical drop at the overlook on this trail. You'll also find some fun side roads through Hack Canyon, as well as great hiking options. Camping is very popular, as the views from the sites are absolutely stunning. Vehicles must be street licensed.
Tuweep became part of the Grand Canyon National Monument in 1932. The monument was declared a national park in 1975. Tuweep ranger John Riffey spent 38 years looking after this area. He became somewhat of a local legend with his airplane “Pogo.” He is buried south of the ranger station.
