HistoryA gulch beginning just east of Interstate 70 at El Rancho and running southeasterly to join Bear Creek about one-half mile east of Kittredge. Swede Gulch merges with Kerr Gulch about one-and-one-half miles northwest of Kittredge. The name came from at least five Swedish families who moved into the gulch in the 1870s.
