The Rim Rock trail is located in the South Rim Section of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park near Montrose, Colorado. After the trail receives an adequate amount of snow during the winter months it becomes a popular destination for snowshoeing along with the Uplands and Oak Flats trails as well as the South Rim Cross Country Ski trail. The Rim Rock Nature trail offers spectacular views of the Black Canyon as it travels the rim for nearly a mile between the Visitor Center and the campground.
