The recommend running route heads up the switchbacks from Oredson-Todd side (east side) and down the White Rabbit Trail
to get there (if you're doing an out and back). In the winter, the switchback side gets a fair amount of sun so it can be the go-to place if snow is an issue on other trails.
People tend to love or hate this trail because of its steep nature and many switchbacks. Starting from the White Rabbit Trail
on the west side, take a right onto Queen of Hearts
to reach the Uhtoff Trail.
Proceeding east, the trail begins a rolling gently and sometimes steeply down, eventually reaching the top of the White Rabbit Trail
, where a bench offers a little respite before the relatively steep switchback descent into Oredson-Todd Woods. Several offshoots of the Uthoff Trail connect to the White Rabbit Trail
affording many loop opportunities. Views of Grizzly Peak, Emigrant Lake, and the Rogue Valley may be the reward for the many switchbacks. Beware of poison oak on the edges of the trail, particularly on this switchback section.
