Ditch West is a fun little trail off of Deep Creek Road in the Sierra Madre Range of the Medicine Bow National Forest in southern Wyoming. The trail follows the Belvidere Ditch for most of its length through shimmering aspen groves and picturesque pine and fir forest before fording the ditch near the end and returning to Highway 70. The ditch bank is narrow but not as overgrown as Ditch East. The rippling water and stately forest make for a quiet, peaceful trip (unless you meet an oncoming dirt bike). Ditch West can be combined with Ditch East by running one or the other backwards to extend your peaceful excursion.
