Decent ride. Not difficult except for the rocks and overgrown grasses towards end of trail. Wasn’t worth finishing so we turned around. Lots of bugs. Some muddy spots. We wore long sleeves and pants but got bit through our clothing.

It was a hot day and these ditch trails offer little shade. There is very little variety except for the height of the grass down the middle of the gravel roads.

Long, hot and not much to see different. The trail (gravel road) is in good condition until you pass New Ditch about 2.5 miles. After that the grass got tall.
