BACKPACKING mid April- Bears Ears area Grand Gulch from Kane Cr to Bullet Canyon

April 19 @ 8:00 am - April 21 @ 4:00 pm Kane Gulch Ranger Station

Grand Gulch is at the heart of the the Cedar Mesa – Bears Ears area in southeast Utah.

Starting at Bullet Canyon we will take 3 days to walk about 23 miles through the canyon bottom then up Kane Gulch back to the highway.

Along the way there will be many Ancestral Puebloan ruins and displays of rock art. Among the named ruins we will pass by include: Junction, Turkey Pen, Split Level.

The trail is well worn but not formally maintained. Same goes for campsites. It has been a very wet winter so there should be a lot of pools and potholes with water that can be filtered for drinking and cooking.

Everyone will be self-contained for camping, cooking, water filtration and personal waste disposal. As we get some folks committed to the trip, it may work out that some of us can share cooking gear, tent space, etc.

Plan to rendezvous at the Kane Gulch Ranger Station when they open at 8AM on Friday. There is good camping about a mile from the ranger station. WE can post that information if anyone wants to camp (car camping) the night before we meet.

Another option would be to spend the Thursday night in Blanding, 36 paved highway miles away (40 minutes drive time). Tanner has a B&B reserved for some trip participants. If you want in on that, contact him.

For more information &/or details call or text Tanner Morrill[masked].
