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 beginners. 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.
