“Gryphon is the curvy Lombard St of the Ashland trail system and connects Red Queen to Bandersnatch.”

Occasionally closed for forest resiliency work.
Great uphill, but a lot of tight turns going downhill.
This is a short, pedestrian-only trail that helps facilitate some nifty loops at relatively low elevation (usually below snow levels in winter). Great views can be had of Mt Ashland and the surrounding peaks. Loop opportunities with: Red Queen
, Snark Trail
, and Alice in Wonderland
Flora & Fauna
