This is the first stop along the park road. It is an incredible view but do not make this your last stop in the park. This is just a wonderful taste of what's to come. Plenty of parking. Interesting information boards. Toilets available.

Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP is amazing no matter what view you take in. Don't miss the history in her creation and take the time to feel the magnitude of her beauty.

This point is the 1st Peak as you enter the park into what you're about to see! You can stop here or head to the visitors center & hike to this area, quick, easy hike.
