"High Point" Top 5 Page for this destination Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Monument Things to Do Tip by Basaic

  High Point
by Basaic

High Point is the last overlook along the South Rim Road. It is a good example of a Pinyon Pine/Juniper Forest. The type of trees in the forest depend on the climactic environment where they are located. Pinyon Pines and Junipers are specially adapted for the harsh arid climate and thin soil of Black Canyon. There is a hiking trail here leading to Warner Point the deepest part of the canyon at 2772 feet.
