Description

Pennsylvania Gulch is a steep and rocky alternative to the southern half of the Switzerland Trail. Or you use this trail to make of loop of the southern half of Switzerland.

The upper section is a mild dirt road (please observe side spurs that are posted no trespassing). The lower section, however, is a steep, loose, and rocky OHV road. There are some interesting abandoned mine ruins about halfway down the hill.
