The perfect intro into the Grand Gulch. This section of Grand Gulch is the most dense with archaeological wonders of the people who once made Grand Gulch their home nearly 1000 years ago. Disconnect from the world and remember who you are in one of the most remote canyons in Southern Utah. Grand Gulch is over 50 miles long and you’ll be back for more after enjoying this amazing trek.
Meet at our Four Corners Adventures shop in Blanding, Utah at 8 am. After introductions with your guides they’ll go over gear to ensure that everyone has what they need. You are welcome to use your own gear or we can supplement any gear you need, just let us know ahead of time. We’ll then load up the van and head to the Kane Gulch Ranger station about 45 minutes drive. Here we’ll check in and watch a short video about Grand Gulch and etiquette for the duration of our trip. Finally, we are on our way on a gradual descent into the canyon. Grand Gulch begins wide, when suddenly you’ll look up to find yourself in a deep sandstone canyon. Small ruins and signs of ancient life begin to appear as we find a nice camp to watch the sunset while enjoying our dinner. There are no campfires within Grand Gulch, but as darkness consumes the canyon the night sky lights up with stars like you won’t believe.
As the sun rises you’ll find your guide preparing hot coffee and breakfast. Today has several options for various side hikes and we’ll see many different cliff dwellings. We’ll take our time and do most of our hiking without our packs. Some sites may include Turkey Pen, Toadie Canyon and Split Level ruins.
Everyone is now getting adjusted to life in the canyon and today includes some of our favorites sites in all of Grand Gulch. We’ll spend time in Coyote Canyon and Shiek’s Canyon visiting the famous Green Mask panel. Our goal is to set up camp near Bullet canyon junction and energetic groups may find time to hike further into Grand Gulch to visit Green canyon.
Our last day in the canyon may also be the most strenuous, but most rewarding day of the trip. Two of the most memorable sites still remain, Jail house ruin and Perfect Kiva. Bullet canyon has some steep climbs up sandstone gullies and offers some of the greatest views of the canyon on our hike out. We’ll reach the van near lunch time for a cold treat and lunch before heading back to real life wishing we could stay in this amazing place.
Note: Itineraries subject to change based on group interest and fitness levels. Itinerary is possible to do in reverse if needed due to permit availability. Custom trips available for fit groups that wish to go a faster/slower pace or explore more.
