Family Friendly A short trail with terrific views.

Description

This short trail is well worth the stop, especially for those visitors seeking stellar views of the Gunnison River.

At just over 1/4 of a mile, the trail is short enough for even the most compressed timelines, and the views from Devil's Point are incredible. Below you, the canyon yawns below, and you'll be able to admire cliffs that nearly surround you. You won't quite be able to see the Narrows from this vantage point, but you'll be able to see the corner of Grizzly Gulch from around the band of cliffs next door.

Once you've finished admiring the views from this area, simply return the way you came for the gentle ascent back to your car.
