  • The Gunnison National Forest was part of our ride through the forest roads as part of our five state, 2700 mile dual sport motorcycle tour.  more »
  • This covers a large area, with lots to do. There are fun roads to explore everywhere, with wildflowers in the summer, finishing, hiking, history, you name it.  more »

  • Did a great hike with my family (wife, daughter 5, son 3, son 2, and daughter 3 months) @ Needle Rock. Gorgeous vistas along the hike. Somewhat challenging hike for the kids with loose dirt and steep trail in areas. My two oldest hiked most of the way (we went .75 mi). I'd suggest getting up there early in the day as it was pretty warm when we went in early September around 11:00 am.
  • We didn't see any wild life, however we had so much fun driving our Jeep through there, just seeing the mountains and old towns and mines. My family loved it!
