Catwalk is a trail that can be ridden in either direction, but it is primarily a downhill trail. Catwalk begins with a fast steep rock section that leads into a large double jump. The trail turns down for the steep section known as the Freeway. Once off the Freeway section the trail turns to a twisty singletrack through the fir trees filled with some rollers and berms. There is minimal climbing on this trail.

This trail can be ridden year round and does get somewhat muddy during wet weather as there is less decomposed granite mixed into the soil.

Access Info

From the White Rabbit Trail parking lot ride up the Ashland Loop Rd from the locked gate for 3 miles to the parking lot of 4 Corners. While climbing from the Toothpick trailhead it turns steep and remains steep for the last 2 miles until you cross another closed gate. Once around the second gate you have reached the 4 Corners parking lot. The trail begins at the north end of the parking lot.

This trail can be shuttled by car also. Take Tolman Creek Rd (2080) from the south end of Ashland and drive up the paved portion to the Toothpick Trailhead. 4 miles from the Toothpick trailhead the road will split, so stay right as the last 1 mile section will bring you to the 4 Corners parking area.
