    Is not this bad

    To get to the bottom of the Canyon, the road you drive on is a very steep grade, has sharp turns, and in spots is one lane. Can not be used if you have a RV or large trailer. Not recommeded for oversized vehicles. The park ranger at the top of the Canyon will advise you as to safety issues and clearence of your vehicle.

    Black Canyon of the Gunnison

    The trails leading to the bottom drop very steeply. The Gunnison route, which splits from the Oak Flat loop trail, heads to the bottom in a very steep one mile. A permit is required to head to the bottom. The Oak Flat Trail heads almost a mile down, and even though its a series of switchbacks, its still pretty steep.
