Route Description for Columbia Ditch Trail
Disconnect from the real world and reconnect with nature along the Columbia Ditch Hike. This peaceful adventure travels through private property, hugging the shoreline of the canal the entirety of the way.
As this route is located on private property, it is important to respect the rules and regulations at the trailhead.
Setting out from the trailhead, follow the Main Tuolumne Ditch Trail west. This mildly undulating path will guide you beneath the shade of the towering red firs and mixed conifers. Enjoy the scene of the rushing waters through the canal and let the sounds lull you into a state of relaxation. Soon the path will redirect you northwest, ultimately delivering you to the intersection with Kewin Mill Road.
From here, turnaround and retrace your footing back along the route to the trailhead.
