Get to know the Ashland area with this fine sampling of near-town trails. The mixture of green and blue singletrack descents help you get in the groove of the riding you’ll see for the rest of the week, and the directional nature allows you to enjoy the flow. Thanks to the doubletrack climb with multiple trail crossings you’ll be able to loop your favorite trail of the day, go higher if your legs allow, or quickly drop back into picturesque downtown Ashland if you decide that the beautiful afternoon would go best with a local IPA.

      This trail is a nice climb, though a couple of the switchbacks are very steep and in need of some work to make them more gradual and rideable. Most switchbacks are rideable. The trail does not go up steeply and then drop alot of elevation near the top as the profile suggests. Update: rode yesterday and someone recently rode down this trail and messed it up in several spots where they rode off the downhill side of the trail.
