High Point

Head to Lake of the Woods for endless views, deep forests, and alpine lakes, a scenic one-hour drive from Ashland. The ride starts on the High Lakes Trail, an improved-surface trail that provides a smooth line through chunky lava rock, giving you insight into the formation of the surrounding landscape. Turning on to the Brown Mountain Trail, you’ll climb and descend through old-growth trees and more lava fields, with occasional views of Mt. McLoughlin. If you really need to rest your legs but still want eye-popping scenery then an out-and-back on the High Lakes Trail will give you plenty of photo opps to fill your social media feed. After the ride, take a dip to cool off and then head to the Lake of the Woods Mountain Resort for dinner along the lake.
