Bullet Canyon

Bureau of Land Management, Utah.

Bullet Canyon is a tributary and popular access route into Grand Gulch. A 7.2 mile, moderately difficult hike leads to the junction with Grand Gulch. Grand Gulch is a popular area for hiking and backpacking to see Ancestral Puebloan cliff ruins and rock art in a natural setting. Grand Gulch and its tributaries feature miles of winding canyons lined with cliffs that provided sheltered overhangs to people in the past. Some ruins are amazingly inaccessible, perched high on ledges and under overhangs. Other attractions include the scenery and wildlife, as well as the solitude of desert canyons. A permit to hike or backpack is required.
