White Rabbit Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Ashland is 15 miles north of the California border on Interstate 5. With a length of 2.3 miles, White Rabbit Trail is short, but it's no bunny hill. This loop takes you to the top of the trail on roads. Climbing on roads facilitates a descent on the trail-well, it's mostly downhill. This route can be ridden as an out-and-back, but climbing up on the trail would be extremely demanding.

Getting to the top of this trail by taking roads is also difficult. The loop begins on a busy city thoroughfare, Siskiyou Boulevard. Next comes incredibly steep Morton Street. It is so steep that your bike will slide down the hill if you set it down to remove a layer of clothing! Sound like a fun ride? Well, you have the devil to pay, but White Rabbit Trail is fun, and in Ashland, "near to town" single-track is hard to come by."

I ride this trail at least once monthly. Starting on the famous "2060" Ashland Loop Road, one climbs from Ashland up to the first gate with a parking area/trailhead. Leaving the road, the trail heads up over a series of small hills with no significant elevation gain nor loss. This portion of the ride is through douglass fir with some challenging turns and some steep little grades, basically following the contour of a hillside. Then, the trees stop as one enters a clearcut above Ashland. Stopping here for viewing of the town''s prominent landmarks (the Ashland Springs Hotel, SOU campus, Siskyou and Ashland Boulevards) is popular at this overlook. The single trek then zigzags down the side of the mountain no more than a thousand feet, most of the hairpin turns doable for an advanced intermediate rider. The trail unloads bikers at the top of Park Street, but the irrigation ditch is the preferred way back to downtown. Watch for hikers on this one.
