Description

The Ditch Trail parallels an old irrigation ditch on the lower western slopes of Snowmass Mt. ski area, and crosses under the Campground chair lift at one point. It's most often used in conjunction with the Connector Trail that gives access to singletrack further up the mountain, but it also provides access to the seldom ridden western terminus of the West Government Trail. You'll find big views of Mt. Daily along the route, and wildflowers during the early summer season.

The trail is wide in many spots, but often rocky, so the best route is essentially singletrack. There are steep drops to avoid on the side of the trail, but this is largely an easy route with a few intermediate moments along the way.

The southwest end of the Ditch Trail continues downhilll to meet up with the East Snowmass Creek Wilderness boundary (no bikes allowed beyond this point).
