Morrow Point Boat Tours
Take a boat ride into the Black Canyon of the Gunnison
Special tours for educational groups available upon request. Please call (970) 641-2337 x205 for more information.
From the Pine Creek Trail parking area, you will walk down 232 stairs, then enjoy an easy 3/4-mile scenic walk along the old narrow-gauge rail bed before reaching the boat dock. We suggest allowing one hour for the walk, or more time for a slower pace. Plan to meet the ranger at the boat dock 15 minutes before your scheduled departure; tours begin promptly at the scheduled departure time.
Note: A short steep road leads to the trailhead. Parking space is limited. Drop-off parking for trailers is available at the top of the access road.
Passengers Traveling from Montrose
For security reasons, carry-on bags and packs are subject to search. All passengers must wear a Personal Flotation Device (provided). Pets, smoking, firearms, and alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the boat.
