  • Great visit. We spent just a couple of hours looking at the amazing canyon. Wow! More impressive than Grand Canyon. Very deep & walls are amazing. You must walk from 200-400 ft to a viewing...  more »
  • Gunnison is really a great part of Colorado. The views from here are awesome. There are so many activities that you can do from mountain biking, to taking hikes.  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!
