The Caterpillar trail was built to be ridden in either direction. It connects the White Rabbit Trail and Toothpick. It is mainly ridden from the Toothpick trailhead and down towards the White Rabbit Trail parking lot. At Toothpick it begins with a short climb. Once at the top, the trail offers a smooth descending trail that has some small jumps and tight switchbacks.

It crosses the Ashland Loop Rd and side hills to the White Rabbit Trailhead. From there, Caterpillar turns left and descends through a well groomed, berm filled flow trail back to the White Rabbit Trail parking lot.

The trail offers plenty for riders ranging from beginners to experts.

Access Info

Starting at the White Rabbit Trail parking lot, pass through the locked gate and continue uphill on the Ashland Loop Rd. Approximately 1.5 miles up is the Toothpick trailhead and Lamb Mine trailhead area. Caterpillar begins on the west side of the road and goes back downhill towards the White Rabbit Trail parking lot.

The upper portion is still closed and the snow is becoming slushy, making traction unpredictable.
