After doing most the pullouts, I would say this is my favorite and had a great view of the canyon and river. Great place for watching the sunset.

Another short and easy overlook trail. This spot also has a very nice view of the Painted Wall. And of the several lookouts that I visited, this one had the best unobstructed view of the Gunnison River running through the canyon far below.

Short walk to the overlook with more views of the Black Canyon. Cedar Point has an old cedar tree near the edge. This is downriver from the VC and between the VC and Warner Point at the end of the road. Also can see the Painted Wall from here across the river.

Decent trail. Not all that busy for a national park which is nice. Not to many trails but the view of the canyon is insane. Awesome place for sure.
