"Circle of Friends"
Sheets Gulch is an adventure the entire family can enjoy. The route visits a massive jug handle arch that I have never seen mentioned anywhere else. My children call it Elephant Arch for reasons obvious to those who have seen it and possess an imagination.
Sheets Gulch is a great introduction into the sport of canyoneering. The canyon contains only minor obstacles. Experienced hikers will have no problems in this canyon. Novice hikers will need to help each other over a couple of minor obstacles. You will likely encounter knee deep wading and mud in several short sections of slots after recent rainstorms.
Total time required for a complete round trip is 4 to 5 hours. The trip can be shortened or lengthened with various options to suit your desires. A vehicle shuttle is not required for this out and back route.
for this route is easy. A GPS is useful in identifying waypoints and in locating Elephant
Arch. Good map reading skills are helpful.
