Trail shared by Andrew Todd

An improved dirt road that runs along the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, which is full of trout!

Description

From the Lake Fork Cutoff Road, head north on this dirt road (County Road 64) through Gateview Canyon. The road parallels the creek for approximately 5 miles, with several established restrooms along the road. You'll see plenty of fly fishermen back here and will need to watch out for cars, but it is a great place to combine hiking and fly fishing!

Flora & Fauna

Brown trout and rainbow trout thrive in every pool!
