We had just come up onto Cedar Mesa via Snow Flat Road, and Bullet Canyon was almost across the two-lane highway, so we picked it from our list as the next one to do. We started at the southern end of the trail knowing it had a northern exit. It wove in and around the trees for a short distance before we saw cars parked in spots.
There was a pit toilet there, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. It was the only one we'd see on Cedar Mesa, so it was good to know about. There was a lot of room around there and it was lunch time, so we decided to stop. We set up chairs and hung out for a long while, just enjoying the area.
We were looking forward to seeing the rest of the trail, so we soon packed up and kept going. Unfortunately, the rest of the trail was a bit of a dud. It was very straight the rest of the way north, and on the way back east.
The only remaining area of interest was on the short spur heading farther west. We were hoping we'd get far enough to get some canyon views, but it wasn't to be. Instead, we found a small parking lot where the graded road ended, but a rough 4x4 trail kept going.
We took that trail a short way before it ended in the trees. There were signs that said it was a private area for reserved camping only. So, we went around the small loop there and headed back to the main trail.
The rest of the trail was fast because it was smooth and straight. We were a bit happy to be back on the pavement and off to our next trail. This probably won't be a trail we do again.
