This trail is on county land and goes through private properties, so STAY on the trail and be mindful of how delicate the access is.

Description

The trail is flat and nothing special, but it serves to keep riders off the highway and connects town to the Harmony Ridge trails.

To access the beginning of this trail, climb up Manzanita Diggins Dr. (frontage road off HWY 20) then left up Coyote Ct. through a neighborhood and skirt around an NID property gate on Coyote Ct. Stay straight when the road transitions into dirt toward the eastern edge. The trail starts at the irrigation flume.

Snow Mountain Flume Trail pops out onto HWY 20 after ~3/4 mi. There, you'll cross the road (caution!) and continue to parallel the flume until you get to Willow Valley Road. This is where you head back or start the climb up Willow Valley Rd. to HWY 20 and Lower Pioneer trail.
