This is really three completely different trails combined into one. Slide Lake is a rocky 4-wheel-drive road with a great scenic ending. Wurts Ditch runs along the top of a curvy 10-mile diversion dam—very weird, but interesting. The upper part of No Name Gulch has some variety, but north of Waypoint 07 is a ho-hum car road.

I drove this trail on June 25, 2018. My directions at Waypoint 03 are a little misleading. At 1.6 miles, it says to bear left through the trees. Actually, you continue straight past a cabin as you head into the trees. The road to Slide Lake seems just a bit rougher than the last time, but it is still a beautiful destination. A new kiosk at the start of Wurts Ditch spells this trail as “Wurtz” Ditch.
