Great views! Trail is hard to follow, you end up scrambling up a lot of the way but well worth it.

Backpacking

Just finished 3 day backpacking trip, starting on the Kane end and exiting through Bullett. Backpacked with a group of 9. Youngest two 10&11 year old boys. A little too advanced for that age. Water was scarce. Be sure to read the updated water post before embarking. No water at the ranger station to top off with. Ranger station was closed when we were there so perhaps there is water inside, but unsure. We did 4.5 miles Monday, 9+ miles Tuesday, and 9+ Wednesday to exit. Was a pretty fast pace for our group, but had time to check our most major ruins along the way. Amazingly beautiful this time of year( Late May). Trail winds a lot, hard to find at times. Would not wear shorts unless you want cut up legs. The Creek was dry the entire time so wet feet not an issue. However if running high you do have several crossings where you will get wet/muddy.

Stunning scenery! This is not a developed trail. Follow the recording best you can all the way to the right as you approach and you’ll find you can climb up onto a ridge and the follow it to the backside of the sailors. A lot of very sandy sections - so wear the right shoes for rock and sand.

This hike is not about the trail, you walk down a dirt road. It's about the beautiful views and scenery. Great views of the valley and most of the named rock structures. You also can see Monument Valley.

I initially drove to a point on Hwy 95 opposite the start point of this hike. I parked beside the highway, no parking area, hike towards the start point. The start point is at the bottom of the canyon and there was no way to get down, the entire area was cliffs several hundred feet high. I went South on Hwy 95 and found a parking area next to Jacob's Chair Trailhead and a dirt road that went into the canyon and out the opposite side. I hiked the road and up White Deer Canyon to the intersection with Long Canyon (start point for this hike). It was 3 miles one way. I've attached that track and submitted a hike with All Trails for that as a stand alone hike.

Great hike. No trail. I used All Trails route and added some exploring. Beautiful views and scenery. CAUTION. I came across a rattle snake sunning himself up on the mesa.

Road had deep ruts and was not doable in a Subaru. Too many people using this road when it is wet.

I had a good time, first solo backpacking trip. The actual area was beautiful. However the main trail was mostly over grown and I spent most of my time hiking through the actual gulch itself. A lot of water, sometimes knee deep, great for a filter. Also at times you will be wading through very tall plants. I would recommend bringing gaiters and a lot of bug spray. All in all a very beautiful time.

Spent a few days in the canyon and with all the side trips I did, I logged 40mi over 2 nights / 3 days. As someone else mentioned, there isn’t really a trail. I was mostly walking on animal trails or boot worn paths after the GG/Bullet confluence. Lots of down trees and overgrown vegetation all along the Gulch. At one point, I gave up on finding a dry route, put on my Tevas and just walked in the water which sometimes was knee deep. Challenging hike but beautiful. Wouldn’t recommend it to a beginner.

We did Bullet to the entrance of Grand Gulch. Unfortunately, Grand Gulch was running very high and the trail was just too muddy and sloppy to continue. So we went back up Bullet instead. Bullet is a non-technical hike with some bouldering, but nothing serious. The trail has lots of cairns and is worn well enough that it would be hard to get lost. Water was plentiful this time of year!

There is no real trail here, you’re fording wherever possible so the mileage isn’t exact and it doesn’t account for the side trips to the many ruins. Our group put in around 30 miles over three days with all of the side trips. The water is higher than normal and water proof boots were very helpful at the many crossings, jumping over the creek. Water is very plentiful right now and the springs are reliable. Water shoes might be a good idea but the work to go directly through the wash may be a little more than you bargained for with the deep mud in some spots.

Whoa! Just did this trail in 3 days. Absolutely amazing with the ruins, rocks and warming spring temps. Lots of water.... bring water shoes and gators are nice to. It's a slog through the Grand Gulch from below Kane to the confluence with Bullet. Slow going but worth every second. Plan for cold weather at night in the spring down in the canyon.

Beautiful hike, but not much of a "trail". Use GPS and the map or landmarks. You can see your start and endpoint for most of the hike so it would be difficult to get very lost.

We spent three days and two nights backpacking. Many ruins to explore right along the trail or a short ways from the trail. There also many up higher in the cliffs that could also be explored if you are not afraid of heights. You will need better directions to the springs than just the Nat Geo Trails Illustrated map to find the springs. Even with the low December temperatures there were several pools of water that were not frozen. If you go this time of year it's not a bad idea to top off you water when you find a good source. There are a few sections where the trail travels through thick brush and the trail gets very hard to follow. in these sections the main drainage is also blocked by down trees crossing the stream bed. Because of this there are multiple paths to choose from. Some of these path are much better that other path so sometime you have to back track a was to find a better way through. It's also not a bad idea to do a web search to learn about the locations of the major ruins along the way. We saw only 6 day hikers and 5 backpackers in the three days and every one of these were near the Grand Gulch-Bullet Canyon confluence.

This was chalk full of ruins and rock art! The hike itself wasn’t a lot of elevation gain but long. We Stayed overnight 2 nights. Water is scarce even in the spring so make sure you bring a good water filter. I could see this getting really hot in the summer. We got a little lost before Sheiks canyon and if I ever did this again I’d make sure I had a gps that I could run constantly. Seriously amazing to see all the ancient ruins. Also people were few and far between which was great. We only saw two other people on our second day.

An amazing place to experience, with limited people and ample water at the end of March. I detoured off course to spend the first night at the mouth of Green House Canyon, 2.5 miles west from the confluence of Bullet and Grand, before getting water at Green House Spring and then backtracking to complete the route. Four days seemed about right for this trip, in which I logged a total of 38 miles in-canyon with my planned detour and numerous side trips to the Anasazi ruins along the way.

Great trail. Give yourself 4 days to do the trip. There are a ton of side hikes to different ruins that you won't want to miss. Also be sure to fill up water every opportunity you get. We were drinking out of scarcely found puddles the entire trip.
