This is right next to the Bloody Shins trailhead at the top of Kluncy. There is parking right next to the trailhead sign in a nice graveled area. This trail has a lot of twists and turns and is most fun when headed down at full speed. Its called the ditch trail because you roll through a ditch near the middle of the trail, but be mindful of riders coming up when you are heading down.

 Twisty trail that does a pretty good job of making a basically flat section of trail enjoyable. Watch out in the summer, some of the corners get really loose and you can wash out pretty easy if you try to carry too much speed. A great trail for beginners.
