Trip Details

Journeying through spectacular canyon scenery, the Gunnison Gorge in western Colorado lies below the Black Canyon National Park, providing a secluded retreat that spans 14 miles and two days of wilderness adventure.

A 7-mile rough 4x4 trail and then a mile hike down the Chukar Trail brings us to the river and the narrow canyon carved through the polished Proterozoic schist and gneiss formations. The first day of Gunnison Gorge rafting brings mild rapids and crystal clear pools that punctuate the journey, while the second day presents a narrowing canyon, a steeper river gradient, and exciting pool-drop rapids that appear one after another, requiring intricate maneuvering or a wild dash through boat-swamping holes and waves. With its unique blend of thrilling adventure and serene beauty, the Gunnison River rafting trip is an absolute must-do for any bucket list.
