Colorado Mountain Club Sponsored Trip Hosted by Centennial Canoe Outfitters:
Canoe & Hike the Canyons of the Gunnison River

Interesting side trips into deep box canyons will leave you awed by the immensity of geologic time and the silence of the wilderness. We plan on staying camped in the same place for two nights in Dominguez Canyon, depending on campsite availability. This allows ample time for hiking the canyon, playing in the river and relaxing. The canyon hosts a 40-foot waterfall, secluded swimming holes and numerous ancient Indian petroglyphs.
