Ashdown Gorge Wilderness Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Ashdown Gorge is a small but unique wilderness area next door to Cedar Breaks National Monument. Locals use the area during the hunting season, but otherwise it receives few visitors. You’re more likely to share the trail with yellow-bellied marmots, Clark’s nutcrackers, mule deer, and Steller’s jays. Bristlecone pines, Douglas fir, and lodgepole pines are the dominant flora.
High elevations mean long winters with deep snow. The lower portion of Ashdown Gorge melts out at least a month before the highest elevations. Access roads to the highcountry usually open in May and close in October. This trail guide includes descriptions of Potato Hollow trail to Ashdown Creek, Twisted Forest Trail, and Rattlesnake Trailhead to Potato Hollow Trailhead."
