Grand Gulch Plateau Recreation Area

365 North Main
Monticello, UT 84535


About :

Grand Gulch offers several great hiking opportunities, all of which allow you to view magnificent ancient Anasazi ruins in a beautiful, wilderness setting.

The most popular way to explore here is to backpack from the Kane Gulch trailhead to the Bullet Canyon Trailhead, about 33 miles total, to a waiting shuttle. The trek takes most people 3-4 days.

Much longer backpacks are also possible, going all the way to the San Juan River (52 miles).
