General Description

Chasm View Nature Trail is a moderate, 1/3 mile long trail located on the North Rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. This trail is located at the end of the one-way campground loop. After a short distance, the trail breaks out of the pinion/juniper forest at the North Chasm View, some 1800 feet above the river. Continuing near the rim, the trail reaches a second overlook with excellent views of Painted Wall and Serpent Point. Keep a lookout for swifts, swallows and raptors frequently seen from this overlook. The people you can see on the far side, at Chasm View overlook are only 1,100 feet away.
