Nice 2 mile loop offering great views of the Gunnison River Gorge. You can add an in and out to the Gunnision River via the Black Canyon of the Gunnison Wilderness trail but will need a permit

Definitely not flat, but great views of the canyon. Around 3 miles round trip.

Pearl short trail. I combined this trail with uplands and rim rock to make a 3 mile loop trail back to the parking lot at the south rim visitor center where I had started. Crowded, so go early or late. Only took me an hour to do the loop of all three trails. Abundant wildlife and fauna.

We took a right when we came to the fork in the trail. Following the Gunnison Route, or River Access, we climbed down into the canyon to camp over night (make sure to get a permit). This was a very strenuous hike down and there are no trail blazes, only cairns left by previous climbers. The view was amazing and definitely worth the climb, but make sure to be in shape and have some navigation skills before you go!
