While there are several routes down from Mt. Ashland, the most popular one follows the renowned Ashland Super D route. You get variety and vertical from this ride, with over 5K’ of descending but even with the shuttle there is still about 1,000 feet of climbing sprinkled throughout the route to keep you honest. The newly redeveloped Jaberwocky Trail at the end of the ride is a testament to the persistence and skill of local trail builders, and it allows wide-open rollicking through the forest as you approach town. Get it out of your system, though, because once it’s over you’re back on mixed-use trails as you roll through the neighborhood into downtown. Now comes the most difficult decision of the day: microbrew or one more time from the top?
