Trail shared by Benjamin Pontecorvo

A simple connector trail linking the Marshall Mesa trails east and west of Route 93.

Description

This simple connector is useful, in that it gets trail users from the east section of trails across 93 to the west section. A newly constructed (fall 2014) tunnel under Rte. 93 eliminates any need to play "frogger" while crossing the highway.

While Community Ditch is not particularly exciting to run, it serves its purpose and has great panoramic views.
