Eagle Rock and Gunnison River

On this special guided hike, we will tour the Eagle Rock Shelter archaeological site in the Gunnison Gorge NCA, which is becoming one of the more significant archaeological sites in North America! Along the way, we'll follow the winding canyon of Lawhead Gulch, which contains ancient tidal channel and river deposits, as well as dinosaur tracks and a stone tool working site. Prepare yourself for amazing canyon vistas and an informative, once-in-a-lifetime learning experience!!
