Mt Shasta from Rabbit Ears

Mt Ashland to town via Time Warp, Marty’s, Caterpillar, Lizard, and Jabberwocky

  – Distance: 14.8 miles
  – Min/max elev.: 2217’/7016′
  – Elev. gain/loss: 675’/-5021′

Starting at Mt Ashland, head west through the Mt Ashland parking lot and onto FS Road 20. Turn right up the Mt Ashland access road (FS 300) until reaching the Time Warp TH. Turn down Time Warp for a wild ride to 2060. Turn right on 2060 and head to Four Corners. Head directly north–straight–to find the Catwalk trail. After a short bit of technical section, look to your left for the Marty’s trail (currently unsigned). Follow this gently uphill and then proceed downhill to join Caterpillar. Again, follow gently uphill before you turn right onto Lizard. Lizard in turn dumps you right into the top of Jabberwocky which will take you to Waterline and the Witzend TH.

Pedestrians often hike Caterpillar and Waterline trails (they are multi-use). Marty’s–an advanced biking trail– is still in an improvement phase (as of 11/30/19); don’t assume the trail is the same as you last rode it.
