Runner Notes

This trail is short, and it's better to take your time on this one.

Description

Though short, the Warner Point Nature Trail can offer a quiet escape. The rolling trail eventually meanders to Warner Point, but along the way there are plenty of pleasant places to stop to take in the views. You'll be shaded by the desert forest for most of the journey, and the smell of serviceberry, mahogany, juniper and pinyon pine add to the unique desert feel of this route. Though the scents and immediate surroundings will capture your attention, take the time to admire sweeping views of the West Elk Mountains, the San Juan range, and the Uncompahgre Valley. You'll also be able to enjoy views into the Black Canyon, where you can see the Gunnison River. The crushed granite surface can be slick, so watch your footing, especially near the trails end. At the end of your trip, you'll reach Warner Point, which offers spectacular views into the deepest portion of the canyon.

On your way in, don't forget to pick up a trail guide to help explain some of the unique features around you.

Once you've enjoyed your time on this trail, return the way that you came to reach the trailhead and your vehicle.
