This is a great overlook to see the Gunnison River below. It is close to the visitor's center and can be knocked out while parked at the large parking lot. This overlook is just one of many stunning views in this park.

Gunnison Point is more open, the rocks are as steep but sort of less jagged, more sheer walls. It's not to be missed if you're in Black Canyon. As I've reviewed for Tomichi Point and Black Canyon previously: this is a great destination if you...More
