Brown Ditch trail review aka (Flume Trail)

The Brown Ditch trail was the funest trail I have ever experienced. The trail itself was easy and have open scenic view to the Sierra National Forest. It is almost a 3 mile hike. This trail is in the Bass Lake area.

At the beginning of the trail, there was a sign “private property and no traspassing”. However, many hikers enters the trail. It is rank 4 out of 5 on the All Trail website. The Flume is own by PG&E and they discourage hikers to go on it. 

The Flume trail took me 2.5 hours to complete the trail. The elevation was well over 3,000 ft. The hike was a total of 5 miles round trip. The trail was flat. There was no steep mountain side or big bolder step to climb on, but boy, it was a long trail. I just wanted to finish it. The weather was warm at 11 am and there were no shade when turning back until we nearly reach the enterance. Walking the flume trail, to me, was frightening. The walk way was very narrow that I can imagine myself walk into the flume and banging my chin onto the wood. That would not end well. Good thing the flume was dry. Not only walking the flume trail was frightening , I have found myself afraid of hieghts. I slowly walk the steel flume trail and I tried to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Sierra National Forest.

The down side to hiking the flume trail was finding a restroom or a portable potty stall. Unfortunately, there were none and I had to squat behind the bush. Make sure to bring plenty of water and bring toilet paper. Also, I heard a couple of gun shots. It’s hunting season so be careful. Another one that kind of bothersome was the flies. I had to fan my face with my hand to shoo them away. It’s annoying, really.

All in all, I enjoyed my hike to nature. It was very fun and different. Except for the flies. Be very careful when walking the flume trail.
