In advance of our Nankoweap backpacking trip beginning Friday morning, we drove up on Thursday with a plan to camp near the TH for an early morning start. Instead of camping at the TH--which is not a great spot for a camp (in a burn area, etc.), we decided to continue drive down FR8910 another 5 minutes beyond the Nankopweap No. 57 TH to camp near the Triple Alcoves TH. Turned out to be a great choice. It's out of the burn area, and a great camping spot.

After setting up camp, we wandered down the 1/2-mile-ish trail to the edge of the rim to a great view over the Triple Alcoves and the Colorado River below. We didn't want to haul our stuff down to the overlook, but there is an excellent camping spot right on the edge of the rim.

We enjoyed the beautiful views as the sun set over the canyon, then strolled back to our camp as night fell.

Great little hike. Highly recommend.
