Russell Gulch

9 miles


Russell Gulch is not a single gulch so much as many ones situated around a ghost town (named Russell Gulch). Make sure you have GPS before exploring, because there are many, many spur trails and you may end up lost. But there's plenty to see (even when lost). Old mines and mining equipment are everywhere and the views are excellent.
