This area is clearly posted a private property with no trespassing signs. Most of this gulch is on private property and recommend that Scott Gulch be used to climb Silverheels not this one.
When I was there in late summer of 2003, the private property sign appeared after a short hike on the road. I thought I avoided private property by bush whacking up the slopes. Is Beaver Ridge all private?
nader: Check the Trails Illustrated map # 109. That is a private section for quite a ways on both sides of the road and most of the way to the ridge.
I just added a note about this discussion to the main route page.
