Hiking and Trail Running

Ashland is a place of unique beauty surrounded by hills of green and nestled at the base of the Ashland Watershed within the picturesque Siskiyou Mountains. The U.S. Forest Service, the City of Ashland and community members have a long commitment to high quality water while providing unique recreational opportunities in the forest surrounding Ashland. Today the watershed boasts a trail system of 50 miles that extends from the paved streets of Ashland to the alpine scenery at Mt. Ashland. The 14,000 acre watershed offers numerous trails for hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians. Source: AshlandWoodlands Trails Association

Voted one of the Top Trail Towns by Trail Runner Magazine, June, 2008, Ashland has its own culture of runners. Rogue Valley Runners serves as one of the outfitters to all your trail running  needs, including knowledge of the trails and a weekly running group. By sharing the trail, runners, hikers and bikers can all enjoy the quiet beauty that Ashland’s trails have to offer.

Trails in and around Ashland include:
     • Lithia Loop Trail
     • Grizzly Peak Trail
     • Looking Glass Loop
     • White Rabbit Trail
     • The Pacific Crest Trail
And more. Many, depending on the time of year, offer a special show of wildflowers. Maps are available at the Ashland Chamber office and the US Forest Service office in Ashland.
