Trail Facts: This short trail follows the Grass Valley irrigation ditch in the Alta Hill area of Grass Valley. Connecting trails lead into undeveloped portions of the two neighboring cemeteries: St. Patrick’s and Greenwood Memorial. These trails are frequented by exercise-walkers and joggers, and also provide a route to Rough and Ready Highway when the cemetery gates are open.
