Hiking the North Vista Trail, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park is located near Crawford, Colorado for the North Rim, and near Montrose, Colorado for the South Rim. To drive from the South to North rim in one day is about a 2-3 hour drive. It's best to pick one that you are more interested in seeing, so you have more time to explore that one area and fit in a hike. We chose the North Rim because it has the longest trail along the rim - the North Vista Trail. This trail follows the mesa as you get to peer down into the canyon, and also leads to Green Mountain (8,563 ft).
