Bullet Canyon is a stunning place. Besides the incredible natural setting, the canyon also has a strong feeling of the “ancient ones.” Here you will find the Jailhouse Ruin and nearby Perfect Kiva. We also found three other ruins and some petroglyphs (look for moons) along the way. The best water in dry times is the Jailhouse Spring, which for us appeared to be a stagnant pool. Best to bring a filter rather than just iodine your water. There is a camp where Bullet meets Grand Gulch, which would be good for an out and back hike, or you can use Bullet to access a longer hike along the Grand. You will do some scrambling in the upper part of Bullet Canyon, but for the most part the route is not difficult and is easy to follow.
