Hero: Gunsight Point
small-sr Icon
This long BLM road traverses a landscape of plains of Mormon Tea and other desert scrub dotted with a few islands of pinion pines and juniper before arriving at Gunsight Point, an amazing overlook of the Kanab Creek Canyon. The views along the way aren't shabby either. Grand Staircase Escalante rises in bright red steps to the north. The bulking uplift of the Kaibab Plateau looms southward. The trail is easy except for a few deep mudholes during the wet late summer. The trail's end has a small campsite right on the edge of the canyon, suitable for two vehicles at the most. Other campsites are nestled where ever there is shade from the pinions and junipers. The BLM signs along the road are numbered 1048. Many maps label the road as 164. Follow the gpx track.
