return to Tollhouse Series 9 Index
Cattle and sheep moved through Tollhouse often. They were driven to the high country in the spring and driven back to foothill ranches or the valley in the fall. Summer graze in the mountains kept ranchers from overgrazing their home ranches. All drives through Tollhouse went up and down the old grade and the old route was still used after the building of the new grade. Some cattle are still grazed in the high country but no sheep. Today they are trucked up and down the mountains.
