Trail Information

Highlights

The Brewery Hill 4WD trail is tightly wooded trail that traverses the Golden Horseshoe trail system. Brewery Hill varies from steep and rocky to slick and muddy. Brewery Hill is part of the Golden Horseshoe trail system which covers over 8000 acres between the Swan River and French Gulch. The area has a rich history and is dotted with countless mines, mills, and cabins dating from the late 1870s through the 1950s. The Golden Horseshoe is crisscrossed with 4WD, ATV, single track, mountain bike and foot trails. Keep a sharp eye out for other folks using this network and, as always, be considerate. Stay the trail, and pack out what you packed in.

Loved Brewery Hill. Tight trail with lots of challenges for a Subaru. Not many pullouts to pass. Fortunately we didn't meet anyone. Forest was really thick and green from all the rain this summer.

I ran most of the Golden Horseshoe today. The trails are all open, mostly dry with a few wet spots. The bypass at the mud pit (waypoint 3) has a couple of feet of snow on it, but the mud was no problem. So far, it's got a firm base.

We ran several trails in the Golden Horseshoe today. There are some dry spots, but most of the trails have 4 to 8 inches of snow. Some have packed tracks, some don't. Some are slushy. Some are icy. (We put fresh tracks on a couple of less-used trails.) Georgia Gulch and the north end of American Gulch may be impassible. (There were no tracks and we decided not to risk it.) Be wary of off-camber spots that are close to trees. Sliding sideways is a good possibility.

The trail is open through. Muddy throughout. The big snowdrift still blocks the mud pit bypass at waypoint 3. Looks like earlier, someone slid off it into the pit and used a bunch of logs to get out. Fortunately, the pit has a firm base right now, so it's stock-passable.
