      This riding area consists of trails of many different skill levels. The area is forested with a mainly granite trail surface. Trails range from mostly smooth at lower elevations to more rocky and technical at higher elevations. All trails can be accessed from either Ashland Loop Road or forest road 2060. The road climbs are moderate, with grades ranging from flat to 15 percent.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
      Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      This area is primarily accessed through Lithia Park in Ashland, although shuttle service is available up to the Mount Ashland Lodge. Park at Lithia Park and ride up the road past the reservoir.
      To access the eastern trails, continue to the left around the reservoir (Glenview Road) and then switch back to the right on Ashland Loop Road. Continue through the neighborhood, following the 'Creek to Crest' signs until the road turns to dirt. Continue climbing the road for as long as you want - there are multiple trail options all the way up to Bull Gap.
      To access the western trails, continue straight past the reservoir onto forest road 2060.
