Description: The trail is best started from the upper trailhead and ending at the lower trailhead. The trail follows the ditch service road for most of it’s length. The trail crosses weirs at Beaver Creek, Craver Creek, middle Beaver Creek and then requires a wet crossing of the Gurley Ditch near the trail end. This can be a dangerous crossing during high water so if you are uncertain of the water depth you should return to the upper trailhead on the trail. If you are able to cross Gurley Ditch you can ride back to the trailhead on Forest Service Road 611 (5.1 miles).
