Government Trail to Grand Gulch offers an excellent hike into the Grand Gulch Primitive Area. Hikers are rewarded with amazing views, a wealth of archaeological sites, and one of the most beautiful desert canyons in the region. The usually good, graded dirt road ahead has a few rough and rocky stretches, and barring severe runoff damage, it remains passable to passenger cars in dry weather. After 2.6 miles you reach a prominent but unsigned junction, where you turn right (west). The good graded road leads west across the mesa, offering splendid views of the Red House Cliffs, Tables of the Sun, Navajo Mountain, and the distant Kaiparowits Plateau. You reach a signed junction after 3 miles (5.6 miles from UT 261), where you bear right onto graded CR 245.
