Description

The Suncliff Canyon tTail is located in the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area and Wilderness near Delta, Colorado. The trail begins at a point along the South River Road and follows a shallow canyon for about two miles to its end. The trail is listed as a fun family hike on the Gunnison Gorge brochure. The brochure is a good reference for the area although it doesn't scale very well when printed off the internet. Some of the trailheads have already printed brochures that are great if you can get your hands on one.

Flora & Fauna

Mountain sheep may be seen along with assorted small reptiles.
