Kelly Ditch Trail
M71 1-15-11 Kelly Ditch Trail connects Wm Heise Park to Lake Cuyamaca, south of Julian, CA. Unfortunately, the trail is blocked by thick brush and fallen trees about 1.7 miles south of Wm Heise. The California State Park folks have not kept up the southern end of the trail. I can’t say what the conditions are if you started at the southern end.
We did find it an enjoyable hike and made a lollipop out of it. On our return to the junction with the Cedar Trail, which leads back into Wm Heise, we kept going east and took a loop up and around a hill. This loop as we found out has a name Potter Trail Loop. We ended up getting 12 miles in with over 3000 feet of climbing. Not bad for what I thought was a relatively tame area.
