HistorySlaughterhouse Gulch is a sizable gulch that winds down the north side of South Table Mountain, at the center of its north face. During the 1990s it was considered as a possible access route to the top of the mountain for trucks as part of a gravel quarry proposal. The origin of its name may have to do with any of the small farms that once dotted the valley below.
