This is an easy and incredible loop trail! Very short, accessible to almost everyone. sections of the canyon overlook are lined with barriers. Great for families and kids and long as you keep an eye on them. Connected to the North Ridge Campground.

Quick and easy trail to an overlook that is on the North Rim of Black Canyon of Gunnison National Park.

The views were breath taking and looking at the massive space really puts things into perspective. Life is too short not to live in the moment.

This is a must do hike if you find yourself on the North Rim of the Black Canyon. Very short, very easy. The trail is well established and maintained and the views are incredible! We went on Memorial Day and the usual National Park crowds were absolutely non-existent.

Super short hike, and you'll end up with similar views if you do the Exclamation Point trail. Worth stopping in and checking out the canyon.

One of the best kept secrets for national parks! We camped in the canyon and had a wonderful time. Very few people, great views, and you could see much of the park from the scenic drive. I wish I was able to spend time doing longer hikes, but if you don't have a lot of time to spend in the area there are half a dozen or so very short hike to the canyon rim from the main road.
