Mountain Ashland Ski Area is approximately 18 miles southwest of Ashland. This is a demanding 30-mile out-and-bike ride. It begins at Mountain Ashland Ski Area and follows gravel roads to the lookout on Dutchman Peak. The length of the trip and the amount of elevation gained make this a difficult outing. There is a lot of easy to moderately difficult climbing, and there are about two miles of steep uphills. The trip includes several long descents. The roads are in fair condition, with some washboarding and rocky sections. The return is almost as demanding as the first half.

crowded in some areas. The bumps in the first mile are hard both directions. There are many hills, but all-in-all this trail was beautiful. And the day was beautiful. Just watch for pedestrians!
