I hiked this trail while camping at the North Ridge Campground. This trail is great and accessible to almost everyone. There are several incredible lookout points over the canyon. This would be a great hike for families and anyone looking for an incredible view that requires little effort. Be very careful near the cliffs with pets and children as there are no barriers.

Nice and easy-1 hour round trip. Almost stepped on a snake!

Go hike it! Short and easy with amazing views from the north rim of the Black Canyon of Gunnison National Park. Be careful where you step, lizards and snakes galore with abundant cactus plants.

The view was worth the hike. We completed this hike as a family.

Excellent family trail. Easy going terrain leading to spectacular views. Definitely worth the hike. The North Rim of the park is much less accessible and therefore has far fewer visitors, adding to the experience of this short hike.

North Vista is an amazing trail. The view from Exclamation Point is one of the best anywhere, absolutely breathtaking. You can hike beyond here to the top of Green Mountain, which is a little more strenuous but still not too difficult and makes for an out-and-back distance of about 7 miles. I got caught in thundersnow on the way down, which was very cool.

Even thought its a bit longer than other "trails" in the park, this one is still easy, flat, and like so many other areas you'll get great views of the canyon.

The trip out to Exclamation Point and back is about three miles round trip, but the entire trail covers around 6, with exceptions aerial views of the canyon at the last mile. If you're going to hike this in the summer, do so when it's cooler -- there's relatively no shade here and dehydration sets in fast !

Trail is well kept mostly dirt terrain and rock out cropping's with scenic views of the Gunnison Gorge visible on much of the hike. The best view is at the end. The Gorge is deep and from the rock cliffs above the river below looks like a creek. It's amazing. Morning hike was a cool 32 deg. The trail had a mix of frozen and wet ground and snow patches. Took some great photos.
