Description

Dry Gulch Trail (GH 35) can be a difficult trail to locate. It is tucked away in the western end of the Golden Horseshoe. The trail begins as a wide, doubletrack at the midpoint of the Golden Gate Loop (GH 39). The trail descends initially, passing Fuller Trail (GH 44) first on the right, then again on the left before crossing Sawmill Road (GH 22) (aka Heinous Hill).

After crossing Sawmill Road, Dry Gulch Trail begins to steepen on a primitive doubletrack before entering a clearing and a newer singletrack section that switches back and forth a half-dozen times to the continuation of the doubletrack at the downhill end of the clearing.

From this point to the bottom, the trail is quite steep, averaging 20% grade. It can be quite a difficult climb if one is so inclined.

Dry Gulch Trail ends on Traylor Way. A right turn up Traylor offers a steep, climb to ZL. Turn left at this junction to reach Gold Run Road.
