“An easy run along a piece of Southern Oregon's mining history.”— Bruce Hope
The Osgood is (or was) 10.1 miles long but the Osgood Ditch Trail (USFS #1276) only follows 1.6 miles of the remnant ditch between Forest Road 4904-011 and the East Fork Illinois River Trail #1274. While the ditch itself has suffered from the harsh winters in the very steep and rugged terrain it traverses (it's in much worse shape than the Sterling Mine Ditch), it is a very pleasant way to cross steep slopes through Port Orford cedars, pine, fir and chinquapin, and an understory of oaks.
