Scenic Tours & Hikes
Black Canyon of the Gunnison Tours and Hikes
Let Dr. Dave Noe show you one of the most astounding features you’ll ever see, in one of the least visited of our National Parks: the Black Canyon of the Gunnison! Here, the Gunnison River has carved an unbelievably deep canyon, seemingly through the middle of a mountaintop, during an extraordinarily short period of geologic time.
Dr. Noe can take you to the best overlooks, along either the South Rim or the more remote North Rim, and tell you the story of the canyon’s amazing geology, history and ecosystems while you take in the dizzying views. Our half-day tours involve a guided, scenic drive to 6-10 overlook stops, with short walks to the overlook points.
For those who are hiking enthusiasts and want to experience the canyon on foot, our full-day tours include the scenic drive to the overlook stops, plus a guided, moderately strenuous hike along the rim or into the canyon.
