Trail shared by Tom Robson

A relatively flat trail along an old irrigation ditch. Great for all ages!

Features River/Creek · Wildlife

Family Friendly This trail is relatively flat and kids will love playing in the creek at the end.

Description

Starting from the Homestead Trail, Ditch Trail cuts a hard right and begins its (very gentle) ascent. Ditch Trail then follows an old irrigation ditch all the way up to the second intersection with the South Fork Loop.

The trail is very flat with virtually no rocks or roots making it a great option for all ages. Ditch Trail also bisects many of the trails in the Rendezvous system, so it's a great way to get from one trail to another.
