This is a great overlook to see the Gunnison River below. It is close to the visitor's center and can be knocked out while parked at the large parking lot. This overlook is just one of many stunning views in this park.

This is the awesome view that's accessible from the Black Canyon of the Gunnison visitor's center. Just go out the back door and follow the stone stairs. The viewing platform is set right on the edge of the cliff that plunges straight down to the...More
