Tuweep is back to High Clearance RECOMMENDED, its usual condition. Please see photo for any clearance concerns.
There is a HIGH likelihood for multiple flat tires from sharp rocks. Travel SLOW to mitigate tire damage. Carry multiple spare tires and/or a vehicle air compressor and tire plugs. When available, a tow truck runs $1,000-$2,000+.
Yesterday (Aug 29, 2012), storms were active across the region. When possible, travel during the morning hours since storms cycle through in the afternoon and evening.
Be prepared to spend the night in your vehicle in the event you become stuck. Carry sleeping bags, food, and extra water.
As of today, the Main Street Valley and Sunshine routes are dry into Toroweap Valley.
Travelers should carry:
- Extra water, food, and gasoline;
- Good tires, including at least one usable spare;
- Parts, tools, and knowledge to handle vehicle and tire repairs including tire plugs and a portable air compressor.
