Dry Gulch LLC, the landowner of Dry Gulch Preserve, has decided to close the Preserve this winter from December 1 - April 1 to all recreational access (including horses). The person to contact for more detailed information or to voice concerns is Stan Sawyer.

It’s been called many things over the years: the Cannon Gold Mine, the Asamera Mine, the holdings of Conoco Phillips, the property purchased by the Appleatchee Riders. Now the land that borders Saddle Rock to the south and that was part of a mining operation until 1994 is known as the Dry Gulch Preserve.
