A local favorite loop that takes approximately 1-1.5 hours to complete.

Park in the Lithia Park parking lot. Ride up Winburn Way to Granite St. Continue on Granite St to the lower reservoir and continue on Glenview St. Make a sharp right turn up the Ashland Loop Rd (a short steep climb to a water tower). Continue on the Ashland Loop Rd towards Morton St. From there the climb is 1 mile to the parking lot of BTI/White Rabbit. Continue pass the locked gate up the Ashland Loop Rd for another mile to the trailhead of Toothpick/Caterpillar.

Take the Caterpillar trail back down as it follows the road you just ascended. Caterpillar is a twisty trail that will cross the Ashland Loop Rd. It turns into a flowing trail with bermed corners back to the BTI/White Rabbit parking lot. Cross the Ashland Loop Rd again.

Now you are on the fast descent of Alice in Wonderland. Watch for trail runners and hikers on this section. Alice will take you to BTI. BTI is a fast twisty trail filled with double jumps. BTI will end at the lower reservoir and now just head back to Lithia Park.
