Description

This fun machine-built singletrack allows access to Sky Mountain Park by connecting the Brush Creek Bike Path to the Viewline trail. The terrain is largely rolling scrub oak to the south, leading to a sage meadow and historic ditch to the north. While the trail can be ridden in either direction, starting from the southern Viewline end will lead to a nicely flowing descent down to the bike path. Riding in this direction is a great way to create larger loops with trails in the area, or can act as a nice final bonus to descending Deadline Trail and then Highline trail on the way to finishing at the Snowmass Rodeo Lot trailhead.

This trail is newly constructed as of October 2014. A future phase of the trail is proposed to continue along the historic ditch to the north before eventually climbing up to meet with the Skyline Ridge trail.

Rolling along the southern part of the Ditchline Trail, fast and smooth.

Starting out on the Ditchline Trail at the south end near Viewline Trail, there's a tiny bit of elevation to be gained.
