Highlight: Summitt Gulch
Summit Gulch is a short, easy, but very narrow 4WD trail. It does not offer any views, but does pass some interesting mine ruins. Summit Gulch is part of the Golden Horseshoe trail system, which covers over 8000 acres between the Swan River and French Gulch and is crisscrossed with 4WD roads and single track trails. 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 popular for hiking, running, horseback riding, and mountain biking, as well as dirt bikes, ATVs, and larger OHVs. Please be cautious and courteous! Stay the trail, and pack out more than you packed in. It is vital that all visitors respect historic sites. Please leave them as you found them. Decades of tourists taking home bits of these historic buildings as mementos or carving their autographs have destroyed much of our history. Many historic sites are in a dangerous state of decay. Never enter or climb on historic ruins. It could damage the site, or worse, damage you!
