Description

This easy trail follows a service road that goes along the Michigan Ditch. This ditch has provided water to farmers along the Front Range since the 1880's. In addition to water, the trail provides awesome views of Nokhu Crags, Diamond Peaks, and the surrounding area.

The service road begins at the top of Highway 14. Cross the street and look for a gate in front of a service road. The trail is this service road for a water ditch and ends just below Lake Agnes.
