Morrow Point Boat Tours
NOTE: Morrow Point Boat Tours will run through September 7, 2014.
Join a park ranger for a leisurely 1½ hour boat tour on the Morrow Point Reservoir. You will travel into the famous Black Canyon of the Gunnison, learning about geology, wildlife, early inhabitants, the narrow-gauge railroad, dams, and reservoirs. Be sure to bring your camera!
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.
