Crawford - Southwest Colorado

 

Crawford is a town where cowboys still wear Stetson hats and spurs, and cattle drives take place down Main Street. An adventurer's paradise, Crawford offers outstanding big game hunting, excellent fishing, four-wheel drive tours and hiking in Gunnison National Forest. Crawford Reservoir, good for rainbow trout and perch, also has swimming and boating. The Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park to the west is the most stunning day trip of all: as deep as 2,700' and as narrow as 1,300', the canyon was shaped by the churning waters of the Gunnison River. A 50-mile long chasm, the Black Canyon's sheer, shadowy rock walls drop more than a half mile to the river creating a somber and memorable site. Ute Indians did not enter the canyon, preferring to stay on the rim and hunt and when you visit, you'll see why - there are difficult trails down. Take raft trips through the steep canyon to see otherwise inaccessible sites.
