Due to Gunnison County Public Health Orders regarding social distancing and group numbers, the boat tour has not started for the Summer 2020 season. We hope to be able to give tours this summer and will post information on this page when it becomes available.
Take a boat ride into the Black Canyon of the Gunnison
From the Pine Creek trail parking area, walk down 232 stairs and enjoy an easy one mile scenic walk along the old rail bed to reach the boat dock. Leave the trailhead no later than 45 minutes prior to the tour and allow more time for a slower pace. Meet the ranger at the boat dock. Pre-boarding begins 15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time; tours begin promptly.
Note: A short, steep, gravel-surfaced road leads to the trailhead. Parking space is limited. Drop-off parking for trailers is available at the top of the access road.
For security reasons, carry-on bags and packs are subject to search. All passengers under 13 years of age must wear a Personal Flotation Device (provided). Pets, smoking, firearms, and alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the boat.
