The main gate on the Entry Road is typically open 8am to 8pm in the spring and summer and closes at 5pm in fall and winter. If this gate is closed, you may continue into the park without a vehicle. You may park along the Entry Road or at the electric substation as long as there is accessibility for maintenance vehicles and you are not blocking gates. Please be aware that quarry trucks use this road system.

Need to Know

Gate hours may vary depending on weather and maintenance needs. Many trails here become very muddy when wet and are closed at those (few) times. There is no potable water in the park, so be sure to bring plenty of your own. The park is open all year but can be hot in the summer months - plan your trips then for early morning or evening.

Runner Notes

This is a very good trail for running, but not when it's wet.

Description

After you pass through the first (main) gate on the Entry Road (also called Roxy Ann Road), you'll come to a second gate. This is the lower parking area. Park along either side of the road but do not block the gate or the road. Be aware that large quarry trucks and smaller maintenance vehicles use this road system.

The Twilight Trail starts just on the other side of this second gate. It contours out along the west side of Roxy Ann Peak, with views of Mount Ashland to the south, Medford below, and Grayback Mountain on the far horizon to the west.

After passing a junction with the Deer Trail, it descends through three long switchbacks to end at its junction with the Pali Trail. The trail itself is continuous here but there's a sign to tell you that you've switched from the Twilight Trail to the Pali Trail.
