The Black Canyon of the Gunnison was established first as a national monument in 1933 and was later redesignated a national park in 1999.  in 1976 about half the park was designated a wilderness area.

The Canyon's river started chiseling rock 2-3 millions years ago and it was known to the Ute Indians before Captain John Williams Gunnison's first official account.

The fact that parts of the formation only receive 33 minutes of sunlight a day is why it is called The Black Canyon.
