Two peaks over 14,000 feet, and 20 peaks over 13,000 feet in elevation add to the majestic thrill.

Popular backcountry areas include Fossil Ridge La Garita, Maroon Bells-Snowmass, West Elk, Collegiate Peaks and West Elk Wildernesses.

At the northeast end of the canyon, almost 30 miles from Gunnison, is Taylor Reservoir, at the northeast end of the canyon is just 30 miles from Gunnison. The Crested Butte area is quite popular for mountain biking as well.

Blue Mesa Reservoir, part of Curecanti National Recreation Area, is the largest body of water in Colorado and provides outstanding year-around fishing.
