The Rockerville Flume carried water 20 miles, from Spring Creek west of present day Sheridan Lake, east to the placer diggings near Rockerville. The flume operated until 1885, and enabled miners to take over $20 million in gold. The trail follows the actual flume bed for much of its length. Along the way you'll see historic artifacts and parts of the flume itself.
