北緣景觀道路的五個觀景點:

Narrows View

遊覽完Chasm View Nature Trail後由North Rim露營區開車循原路經 Ranger Station回到G74 RdBlack Canyon Rd岔路取右仍沿G74 Rd南行,行約0.6哩即抵達Narrows View觀景點,此點最好的景色是東南邊的Gunnison 河流上游方向,距對岸最近距離約750/229公尺。

Balanced Rock View

Narrows View不遠的觀景點即是Balanced Rock View,此觀景點右側有一顆平衡石,觀景點名稱可能因此而得名;由此點往南看可看到多條陡峭岩壁下的支流,及一條所謂” Long Draw”的陡峭山徑通往河谷,該山徑約半哩長,下降約1,800呎,所以又稱為 Devil's Slide"。

Big Island View

Big Island View看峽谷上游就比較寬了,峽谷兩側的山壁也沒那麼陡峭,但也更加多變,部分山壁樹木繁茂,偶被岩壁溝壑分割開來,此點可較明顯再次俯瞰到河谷的湍急流水。

Island Peaks View

Big Island View 順著道路蜿蜒到下個觀景點Island Peaks View,在此點看到的懸崖分裂更為明顯,河谷大部分隱藏在峭壁、樹林之間不易看見,此點是公園中最好和最不尋常的觀景點之一。

Kneeling Camel View

此點是北緣景觀道路的最後一個觀景點, 隔著峽谷正西邊是南緣的Pulpit Rock Overlook ,西南邊則是南緣的遊客中心及Gunnison Point

在黑峽谷國家公園北緣我們花了三個半小時參觀後開車直驅丹佛結束四天的賞花觀景度假行程。
