Collins Spring Trailhead to The Narrows Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Grand Gulch, a rich riparian oasis and outdoor museum of the ancient Anasazi culture, is one of Utah’s classic canyons. Yet its remote setting is largely reserved for the backpacker willing to spend several days exploring its hidden depths. A notable exception is the easy walk down Collins Canyon to The Narrows, perhaps the best short hike in Grand Gulch.
This fine trip traces the slickrock gorge of Collins Canyon, the only Grand Gulch access from the west, via a well-worn and in places constructed trail into the lower reaches of Grand Gulch. Unlike other Colorado Plateau slot canyons, The Narrows of Grand Gulch are very short, stretching only about 20 to 30 feet, but the canyon walls there are separated by only 8 to 10 feet."
