Todie Canyon to Grand Gulch Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Todie Canyon, a short precipitous gorge, offers the shortest and most challenging route into upper Grand Gulch. Although most of the route is straightforward, a very steep scramble and slickrock friction descent off the rim adds excitement to the route. Backpackers are advised to carry a rope to lower packs off the rim.
The trail begins as a closed road behind the trailhead register and information signboard, leading west above the rim of Todie Canyon, narrowing to a singletrack after 175 yards. Views soon open up into the headwaters draw of Todie Canyon to the north, its gorge embraced by low walls of Cedar Mesa slickrock."
