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 leaving the trailhead no later than one hour prior to the tour, or allowing more time for a slower pace. Plan to meet the ranger at the boat dock; pre-boarding for the tour begins 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time; tours begin promptly at the scheduled departure time.
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.
