Gunnison Gorge Raft + Kayak Seminar | 2 Day | Gunnison River, CO
GUNNISON GORGE KAYAK + RAFT INSTRUCTIONAL COURSE
Gunnison River Gorge below the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
A boater’s and angler’s paradise- a hidden jewel a mile deep in the steep granite walls of the “Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park”. The narrow river corridor makes for exciting whitewater and the clear cold water has been designated a gold medal trout fishery. Accessible only by foot and horsepack, it is a wilderness canyon for those willing to put a litte extra effort into their vacation. This remote beauty and sense of solitude will be ample reward for the hike – a trip to remember.
