This beautiful hike is the best mix of ever-changing scenery in the Curecanti National Recreation Area and the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park! The trail begins at the rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, with majestic views down into the canyon.

We didn't do the trail but there are lovely walks to stroll and have great canyon views. Morrow Lake is beautiful. Love this area.

Many people admire this canyon from the rim of Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, but never make the forbidding-looking (and, in the park, generally dangerous) trek to the bottom. This trail off Route 92 east of the park, starting at Pioneer Point, will give you the chance. It shouldn't be taken lightly, since the 880 feet down is... More
