Runner Notes

Parts are steep.

Description

This trail was substantially re-routed and rebuilt in 2016 and connects from Ashland Loop Rd near the Cottle-Phillips trails to Bandersnatch, Jubjub and Red Queen.

It climbs steeply at times on a ridge and affords views of parts of the Rogue Valley. It crosses the BTI mountain bike trail, so beware for other users at this crossing.

Many shorter and longer loops are possible in conjunction with the aforementioned trails as well as FS Road 2060. Most of this trail is pedestrian-only. The top part overlaps with a multi-use section which allows equestrians and mountain bikers (who may use JubJub and Bandersnatch).

Please be courteous to neighbors This trail passes above and below some residences. Please speak softly in this section (signed).

Flora & Fauna

Poison oak abounds.
