Ute Road Professional Review and Guide
"This is the longest hike into the Black Canyon, but the least challenging—if you’ve got stamina. It also provides nearly two miles of river access—more river access than most other trails into this magnificent gorge."
--Bill Haggerty, Hiking Colorado's Western Slope (Falcon Guides).
