Arrastra Gulch and Mayflower Mill

Photos Mike Sinnwell September 2007

This gulch was in operation for over a century. It all started in 1870 with gold discoveries and ended in 1980. Te first areial tram was installed here and the name came from all the arrastras built in the gulch by the prospectors to pulverize the ore.
