Curecanti Creek is one of the prettiest trails in the Gunnison Valley. The trail descends 880 ft and much of that is next to the rushing water. There are multiple bridges that you cross and when you arrive at the river bed at the bottom there is a beautiful little Sandy area for your picnic. You will need that energy... More

Easy to get to two or three great overlooks here off Route 92. All ages can easily get outvy the overlooks. Dizzying views down into the canyon and the river. Spectacular!

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. The trail then winds down and along the fast-flowing Curecanti Creek, crossing twice on sturdy... More

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.

Because we were touring in mid-day heat, we did not tackle this trail, but I though readers might like to know that you can wander around Pioneer Point and hike out and back to two separate overlooks if you are not up for this amazing climb. We must have spent 45 minutes doing just that. The canyon views are marvelous... More

It is beginning of June 2014 and Marrow Point tours are suspended because of runoffs but while hiking down on Curecanti Creek from Pioneer Point off route 92 be prepared for loud and spectacular show. It is amazing how this gentle and already beautiful stream becomes extremely loud and more spectacular with all this water rushing through. The trail is... More

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
