Kane Gulch is located in the Cedar Mesa/Grand Gulch Primitive Area west of Blanding, Utah. Kane Gulch is a tributary of the well known Grand Gulch. The area hosts numerous archaeological sites containing such things as cliff dwellings and granaries. For the most part the trails in the area are primitive in nature with little to no development. Popular routes are usually marked with cairns. Other than that hikers have the canyon walls and hopefully a good map to serve as their guides.
