The Gunnison River has been hard at work over the past two million years, carving out the sheer cliffs and towering spires that today make up Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.
Step out of the city life by going to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and South Rim Road. Step out of Black Canyon Of The Gunnison National Park to go to Crawford and see Needle Rock, which is approximately 44 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the striking landscape of North Rim, take a memorable drive along East Portal Road, take in the dramatic natural features at Painted Wall, and take in the awesome beauty at Pulpit Rock Overlook.
