Black Canyon Of The Gunnison National Park Activities

Known for crumbling rock, dizzying heights, and a lack of places to place protective equipment, climbing in the Black Canyon is a challenge limited to highly experienced, expert climbers only. Prepare yourself for 2,000 ft, narrow canyon walls dropping almost vertically to the Gunnison River. Many of the overlooks are easily accessed by car and very short walks. Interpretive programs are offered all summer. Evening programs are presented at the South Rim campground, on summer weekends.
