This short 1.5-mile round-trip hike leads to some of the most beautiful views of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison! The trail "skirts the south rim to Warner Point, which bears one of the widest views of the canyon, extending to the Painted Wall to the east and along the Gunnison’s gradual descent to the plateau to the west," writes Jonathan Stull on [OutdoorProject.com](https://www.outdoorproject.com/united-states/colorado/warner-point-nature-trail).
In the distance, the Elk Mountains provide a beautiful long-range backdrop. "Don’t pass up the illustrated walking guide pamphlets as you begin your jaunt, because this undulating path has 14 sites of interest that you’ll want to read about," writes Lindsey B.
