Hi Alan,



I've had a look and there's nothing identified as such on Canmore, and I cannot see anything on the modern aerial photos. The ditch could be a path - the hillock looks to be well trodden by stock of some kind.

Sorry Brian, just saw your reply just now.



Yup seems likely it a path. The picture's not clear enough to tell whether there's a fence the beasts would be following. I also can't identify its position for definate on a current aerial shot but I think its tree covered which doesn't help.
