    The Gunnison River starts west of Grand Junction near the Continental Divide above Crested Butte Ski Area and flows through the town of Gunnison and on through the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. A raft trip on the Gunnison River is a true wilderness adventure, beginning with a mile long hike down the Chukar Trail where you will meet the rafts that have been brought in on horseback! This trip is a raft guide favorite and features great fishing, hiking and swimming in the warmer months.

    The river meanders through a National Conservation Area and has been awarded “Gold Medal” status quality for providing an important habit for trout. This fourteen-mile stretch has also been nominated for the “Wild and Scenic River” designation.

    The scenery is reminiscent of the Grand Canyon section of the Colorado River and is characterized by clear green water, towering black granite cliffs and foaming rapids and glassy pools. A very limited number of rafters are allowed to run this river on a daily basis, which assures a true wilderness experience.
