This loop starts and ends in Ashland with over 8,000′ of climbing up to and along the Siskiyou Crest. Part of the route parallels the Pacific Crest Trail. No services at all once you leave Ashland until Talent at mile 53. In Talent there are several eateries and a good coffee shop, or you can grab a beer at Flywheel Cycles. Incredible views! Roads are mostly packed DG, but can be rocky around Dutchman Peak. 32c tires minimum and some low gearing recommended.
