Description 

Devils Gulch is the historical spot in which outlaw Jesse James Jumped the 20 foot wide canyon wall to escape the lawmen on his tail. Most the rock here is really shaded and sadly really dirty. The Park is kept up by donations and the City of Garretson.

Getting There 

Once you enter Garretson head on the highway towards the John Deere distributor and take a right or if coming in from North a left. The sign will be there also.
