Advisory: Grand Gulch Considered Impassable 3/4 Mile Up-Canyon From River
Due to further erosion over the winter, the BLM Monticello Field Office is advising hikers, backpackers, and packrafters that Grand Gulch is impassable at a pouroff approximately 3/4 of a mile up-canyon from the San Juan River confluence (see photo below). It is strongly recommended that visitors do not attempt to climb around the pouroff. For more information, call the BLM Monticello Field Office at (435) 587-1500.
