Excellent Trail, the ruins were breathtaking. Will return to hike Bullet in it's entirety.
Down Bullet Canyon and Grand Gulch and out Government Trail.
bullet and sheiks canyon, nice robins
i love this area, but the problem with Grand Gulch is they do not allow dogs.
I visited first time for a one day hike in winter down to kane canyon, and then recently hiked Shiek's canyon. My dog was waiting in the car.
They allow cows on trails, but not dogs.
However, the whole area is incredible rich in Native American history. There is so SO much to explore!
What a hideous place. Everyone should just stay away...
Seriously, though, it was a great hike. The canyon is beautiful and fun, the ruins and rock art is amazing.
Went down Bullet and up Polly's (which was amazingly full of water).
Down Shieks to Grand and up Bullet- long day hike. Bullet (and Shieks) have some pretty long and boring parts at their upper ends. Several nice ruins and petroglyphs.
Hiked down bullet to green canyon. Day hiked to mollys island and back. Then up to sheiks (green mask!) and the thumb. Out bullet. Spread out over six days. Too much to see!
Descended three times. The Green Mask is creepy.
Spent time exploring Kane and Bullet canyons.
Damn this log hasn't been signed forever, Ive done this hike before but we just went in Kane Gulch camped and came out. This time we stashed our mountain bikes at the Bullet Canyon trail head and entered via Kane Gulch explored Kane Gulch, then exited via Bullet Canyon grabbed our bikes and rode the 7 mile back to my truck making a good 30 mile circle. everything went well except I think I contracted Giardia :(
One of my favorite hikes to do, I would like to explore Bullet Canyon more.
Amazing Anasazi ruins and artifact here!
Went to Split level ruin via a descent into Todie canyon. It is not for the faint hearted. I missed a cairn and ended up corkscrewing under and between boulders before I made it to the canyon bottom. The rest of Todie canyon was a fun walk on the boulders and rocks that have tumbled into the running creek. Grand Gulch's brushy, mostly level trail brings you right into some ruins, and right under others, depending on which branch of the erratic trail you take. I had never heard of Grand Gulch before planning this vacation, but I would reccomend it as a MUST.
My understanding wife allowed me to spend a month on the Navajo Reservation at Sage Hospital in Ganado and clinic during my 2nd year of my training. Spent 3 of 4 weekends backpacking and hiking. My last weekend a medical student and I drove up to Natural Bridges NM, hiked the loop under all 3 bridges and camped. The next day we \drove south and did a short hike in the upper gulch and headed back through the Monument Valley. I wish I had more time to explore the Gulch. What a great place!
October 27th through October 29th. Perfect time of the year to visit this canyon. The ruins were incredible.
Dayhiked into Collins Canyon to the Narrows... Saw no one else and loved it! Hope to return someday to see more.
Dayhiked Collins Canyon, cold day. Also hiked up from the river on several trips when I was young.
A wonderful outdoor museum. I hope this region will remain a special place for those lucky enough to see it in pristine condition.
KILL ALL VANDALS!!
Did the canyon in a whirlwind trip of 2 days including as much side stuff as we could. Caught in a bit of a flash flood - pretty spooky place to be when water is pouring down
Lead a backpack.
Kane Gulch - Bullet Canyon (April 20-22, 2001) Three day backpack in this nice canyon area in Cedar Mesa. Explored the ruins and petroglyphs along the way. I recommend this place for anyone who enjoys Anasazi history.
