Recent trail building session in the Ashland Watershed

Trail events are one of our main activities because we are physically able to create and maintain trails and trail access in the Ashland watershed. AWTA and its volunteer members have been responsible for building and maintaining many miles of trails.

We need people like you to come out and help us create trails for today and for future generations. It’s a great way to meet new people, see Ashland’s newest trails, and get some exercise.

Come on and join us!

Trail Building Opportunities

About the Rickety trail: about a mile long, this multi-use trail connects from the intersection of 2060 and Horn Gap Rd up to near the intersection of Rd 400 and 2060. It will have a bit of the flavor of the Horn Gap trail and facilitate some interesting loops, particularly when we build the Wonder trail,
Bandergate is located at the trailhead of the Waterline and Bandersnatch trails on Glenview Dr, just above and east of Lithia Park and the swimming reservoir. There is a ton of parking.

For all AWTA trailbuilding the level of activity varies widely so all help is appreciated. Please bring water, sun screen, work gloves and a lunch. Note, the Pacific Crest Trail is at high enough elevation to prevent Poison Oak from growing. Lower elevation trails may have some present, so appropriate caution is advised.

Scheduled events are subject to weather conditions and additional events may be added. Complete a membership registration on this site to be included in email reminders prior to events. For additional information or questions on events, see our Facebook page and/or email us at info@ashlandtrails.org . More details to come.
