Owner description: Dam built to divert water to farmers.

Take the time to read about the dam/tunnel and the water flow to the farmer's in Gunnison. What an amazing engineering project, and the fact that they drain the tunnel every winter for inspection and repair amazed me.
Remember the road is closed in the winter, so time your visit in the summer to enjoy this site.

A nice cool resting area 5 miles down from the Visitor Center along side the river. Picnic shelters and grills available and great to keep out of the hot sun.

The views of Black Canyon were beautiful, and it's a lovely drive. We drove from Paonia, just an hour away. Saw lots of deer, colorful leaves, gorgeous snow-topped mountains.
