Crowds

A very popular entry into Grand Gulch, often as part of a backpack partial loop with Kane Gulch as the entry / exit. It’s an imposing canyon and tricky in places with plenty of obstacles. Near the top is an Anasazi tower and about 4 miles down are the well-known ‘Perfect Kiva’ (into which you can descend) and ‘Jailhouse Ruin’ sites.
