"A very easy interpretive trail to a historic site in Great Basin National Park. The trail may be temporarily closed due to a large wildfire. Check with Great Basin National Park before planning this hike. A sign at the trailhead briefly explains the history and purpose of the ditch. The trail follows a drainage downhill through the woods a short distance to reach the remains of the ditch, which contours along the hillside. When it was operational, the Osceola Ditch ran 18 miles along the Snake Range to deliver water from Lehman Creek, on the east side of the range, to the town of Osceola on the west."
