“A short, singletrack trail in the Basalt Mountain area.”— Eric Gardey
The first 0.9 miles follows an old ditch line. It is flat and smooth and a nice ride for beginners. At the 0.9-mile point, you intersect with the Upper Ditch Trail off to your right. The bottom of Upper Ditch Trail actually is the creek bed at this point.
The main Ditch Trail heads to the left down the creek drainage. The trail is more difficult at this point, but still good riding. The singletrack dumps you out on Upper Cattle Creek Rd. (Forest Route 509).
