Black Canyon of the Gunnison

A great place to take a family fun day is to Colorado’s grand canyon – Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.

This park is a great place to spend the day(s) hiking, camping and picnicking. It offers beautiful views of the canyon from either rim – Stunning 2,000 ft drop to the canyon floor!! There are activities and programs that everyone is invited to participate in.

We enjoyed a nice visit to the South Rim Visitor Center and a short hike closeby. There are rim trails (for hikers of all capabilities) and inner canyon routes (for experts only – permit required).

The park also offers interpretive programs and a Junior Ranger Program for kids at the South Rim Visitor Center. During summer weekends, there are nightly presentations at the South Rim Campground.

This park has it all! Check it out when planning your next southwestern (Grand Junction, Gunnison, Montrose) Colorado vacation.
