Trail shared by John Ives

A mostly easy dirt road along an irrigation ditch.

Description

This road follows an irrigation ditch from Mayflower Gulch to Humbug Creek. It would be an easy route if it weren't for the tough section up a steep bank early on. The road actually starts pretty close to the parking area, but most people will prefer to take the clearer Irrigation Connector at the second intersection.

Cross the two irrigation ditches and get ready for the steep section for about 0.4 miles. After that, the grade is nearly flat and the road is wide all the way to the primary irrigation ditch where it ends at the ditch supply point.
