Eagle Rock Shelter at Ute Indian Museum


Eagle Rock Shelter with the Colorado Canyons Association

Eagle Rock Shelter, on Bureau of Land Management land at the north end of the Gunnison Gorge, isn't well known to the public, but it's the earliest site of human occupation in Colorado. The site was first found by looters in the 1980s, and efforts are under way to preserve it. Join the Ute Indian Museum and the Colorado Canyon Association for a guided tour through the museum and a hike through Gunnison Gorge as we explore Colorado's archaeological past. This is a moderate hike, but it has some steep sections. Hiking shoes and water bottles required! Lunch and snacks will be provided.
