    Although this is the busiest of the roads, there are a lot of view points and if the ones nearest the Visitor Centre are particularly busy just go up to the end and work your way back.  more »

    There are 2 or 3 places to the entrance where you can find beautiful points of view in the Park! If you're in the area and you have the time you can do a detour with an entry $ 20 if I remember correctly!

    Very quiet park but definitely worth it! The canyon is very steep and deep. Well cared for, many outlooks and rest rooms. The map of the south rim is clear. We have the oak flat route. This route has some height differences but does not run along the edge. Also at high point the route walked. Insanely views. From different stops you can see and hear the river. You look immediately. Recommended!

Where to stay in Black Canyon Of The Gunnison National Park

If you don't stay in one of the two campgrounds in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, the nearby town of Montrose serves as the second-most convenient option. Here you'll find numerous economy motels and a few small bed and breakfasts and inns. Many of these are only about 16 km (10 mi) from the park's south entrance. Delta sits north of Montrose and offers a similar range of accommodation types. Here, you'll be about 40 km (25 mi) from the park. About 56 km (35 mi) south of the park, the small town of Ouray offers a couple of hotels, some of which sit in restored brick Victorian buildings that characterize the town's architecture.
