Mile 177 - Toroweap Valley and Overlook & Vulcan’s Throne (visible on rim)
A long valley (25 miles) leads to Toroweap or Tuweap Overlook on the Grand Canyon’s north side. Looking down from Toroweap one can see the cataract Lava Falls. Undoubtedly, the overlook is one of the most impressive anywhere in the Grand Canyon region. Looking from the edge, the river flows 2,500 below. The Lava Falls Trail, west of the overlook, leads hikers to the river in a distance of 1.5 miles.
