“This short and easy run travels into Grand Gulch embraced by impressive slickrock canyon walls.”— Tilman Giese
The canyon walls soar up to 300 feet and provide a fair amount of shade, making this a pleasant journey even in higher temperatures. After 1.5 miles, a major side canyon opens up on the left, but you'll want to stay on the right. At the next bend, Collins Canyon merges with Grand Gulch. Continue south (right) down-canyon, where The Narrows will appear on the left. Descend through here, enjoying the narrow passage and the shallow seasonal pool behind it.
When you're ready, simply return the way you came to reach your car.
