This multi-day backpacking trip requires no technical climbing skills and will involve:
- Scrambling up/down sandstone ledges.
- Sandy, rocky, muddy, un-even trails.
- Crossings of washes with varying degrees of up and down terrain.
- Varying weather, although generally sunny, warm days and cold nights. Temps during the day can reach degrees in the 70’s and 80’s.
This will be a 28-30 mile trip covered in 4 days. Daily mileage will vary, depending on water needs(1st Priority) and what we want to see.
We’ll pump water everyday from springs located in the gulch.
Day 1: Trek approximately 8 miles with sidehikes to sites and water sources. Camp at Bullet Canyon/Grand Gulch jct.
Days 2-4: Generally 6-7 mile days at a steady pace, visiting sites, lunch/rest. Camp near a water source.
The first day is downhill, descending into the canyon. The remaining days are a gradual inclination up Grand Gulch to the Kane Gulch Ranger station.
Days will begin before sunrise(breakfast, break camp) to get us on the trail by sunrise. This will give us as much time to explore and make miles to our next camp.
