Gunnison Route

Nice day for it. Not too crazy, but I guess that's why it's the most popular route.

great park  Sucess!

Hiked to the bottom camped around for a few days. Great views and spectacular rock. Not many people around was pretty great as well.

frequent visits  Sucess!

I live only 10 miles away, and love Black Canyon - it is great for cross country skiing in the winter, a great road biking up to South Rim (and the road to the river has the steepest grade in Colorado), good hiking, I don't fish - but Gunnison is full of large trouts, and of course rock climbing - scary huge walls, so I am doing only the easier ones (am an old lady after all).

Great Hiking  Sucess!

No other canyon in North America combines the narrow opening, sheer walls, and startling depths offered by the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.

Climbing  Sucess!

Escape Artist. An amazing 8 pitched 10a. Back for more. There is nothing like climbing in the black. It's my type of climbing.

nice place  Sucess!

visited at least 5x times this year. We live only 5 min away - always hiking different trails.

Fantastic venue!

South Rim  Sucess!

Drove around the South Rim and hiked to a bunch of the overviews of the canyon. Only had a few hours here, since we had to head back east.

Gunnison Route  Sucess!

Begin to hike late morning with my family. Hiked the Gunnison Route from the Visitor Center on the South Rim. Did not run into anyone on the trail. Steep cool wall very quickly heated up on the afternoon. Bring lots of water!

Scrambled/slid down the trail from the visitors' center to the canyon floor and stayed the night. The trail is steep and comprised of loose rock and dust (in the summer). Legs were screaming a couple of days later, but it was worth it for the wild scenery at the canyon floor. Didn't see anyone else until nearly returned to visitors' center.
