Grand Ditch Trail
The Grand Ditch is a nearly 15 mile long canal that was constructed in the late 1800s to divert water flowing out of the Never Summer Range. This trail, or rather dirt road, parallels the ditch for its entire length. The level and maintained nature of this trail make it easy to hike. That being said, accessing the Grand Ditch is generally a different Story. There are many trails that ascend to the Grand ditch including Ditch Road, the Red Mountain Trail, Stage Road Trail and Little Yellowstone Trail. All of these trails are steeper and more difficult trails than the easy Ditch Trail. All in all, this trail is made interesting by its historical significance, the views on offer along the way, and the engineering that went into creating this impressive water diversion system.
