This beautiful gem of the byway could be easily passed or overlooked
if travelers aren't already aware of it. The Black Canyon Gorge is
just one mile west of Grace and offers display of a basalt lava flow
combined with the effects of nature over time. The Bear River formed
the canyon as it cut through a series of lava flows.
A worthwhile site on the byway, the Black Canyon Gorge also
offers recreational opportunities. Anglers and kayakers especially
like to take advantage of the gorge.
