Notes:

It appears that the actual Gate is a few hundred feet south on the same creek in the photographs pictured here.


From the Guidebook:

Jackson Gate, on the north fork of Jackson Creek, takes its name from a fissure in a reef of rock that crosses the creek. In 1850 about 500 miners worked here and the first mining ditch in the county was dug here - its water sold for $1 per inch.
