Are you planning an extended stay at Twin Peaks Lodge & Hot Springs and looking for things to do beyond Ouray? May we suggest Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in the western Colorado area? The park is home to the deepest and most breathtaking section of the Black Canyon, which earns its name from the portions of it that receive sunlight for less than 35 minutes each day.
Whether you’re planning on hiking, driving, kayaking, fishing, or even thinking about climbing the rocks, Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park has it all. In regards to the trails, the park has several intended for hikers of various skill levels such as the Rim Rock Nature Trail, a moderate experience consisting of a one-mile roundtrip trail. Hikers will find beautiful vistas of the Gunnison River as well as the various plants like sagebrush and Utah juniper.
For something a little more relaxed, you could consider some wildlife watching. Black Canyon is home to a number of animals and you can see them in their natural habitat. Should you happen to encounter one, remain still, try and quietly find some cover behind a tree or brush, and enjoy the marvel of nature.
