Black Canyon of Gunnison
It offers more than its fair share of breathtaking views along 14 miles of this canyon as it plummets more than 2,700 feet to the thundering river below. Hiking trails of all difficulties, including extremely strenuous and treacherous hikes to the river bed below, are available to suit the needs of the entire family. Located approximately 50 miles west of the city of Gunnison along Hwy 50, it doesn’t see the high volume of visitors many other more popular national parks do. It may be the perfect “hidden treasure” for you to explore next!
