The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
The awe-inspiring Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is just a short drive from Smith Fork Ranch, and offers spectacular viewpoints along a wide array of hiking trails. A key trail off the North Rim Ranger Station is Exclamation Point, which is about one mile each way and offers spectacular views of the canyon depths, the Gunnison River below, as well as excellent bird watching. Feel like hiking further? The North Vista Trail goes on for miles past Exclamation Point with varied terrain and a forest of Douglas Fir, Aspen, and Gamble Oak.
