Hiking Ruins Seldom Seen

This trail not only has a stunning finish at Split level ruin, it boasts a serious canyon descent into Todie at its beginning. 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. Sightings of unbeleivably inaccessible ruins begin here. Entrance into Grand Gulch started as a brushy, mostly level trail that brings you right into some ruins, and right under others, depending on which branch of the erratic trail you take. The highlight, Split Level Ruin, is accessible, wonderfully preserved and beautiful. I had never heard of Grand Gulch before planning this vacation, but I would reccomend it as a MUST.
