Mt Ashland Super D Trails
Trailhead Elevation: 6464 ft
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

The length of the trail is perfect – about an hour or so depending on how much you stop. This is a great workout but does not tire you out so much that you can’t do another shuttle! The trail stays in good shape 90% of the season. Snow melts by Memorial Day and arrives again by Thanksgiving. You can ride single-track the entire way to Lithia Park or take the fire road option if you prefer. Even the fire road is fun and beautiful. Dropping into beautiful Lithia Park and jumping in the swimming hole on a hot day can’t be beat. Then the breweries in town are calling your name. Then it’s a short pedal back to the shuttle!
There are many single-tracks through the forest… some smooth and flowing and others with rock gardens. Lots of switchback turns, and one good climb of about 700 feet. A couple flat rolling sections, plus some very natural technical sections (not bike park stunts). Very beautiful views with a lot of photo opps, and lots of friendly locals to help with trail options along the way.
Directions: Right off I-5 south of Ashland, 5 miles from the California border. Shuttle service available in Ashland through Ashland Mountain Adventures.
Seasons: Early summer through fall
