Snark

Snark is a relatively unknown gem in the lower Ashland trail system connecting Waterline Trail to Bandersnatch with quick access to Red Queen. On the low end, it features some quiet, shaded forest areas and then climbs, often steeply, up to some sunny slopes to Bandersnatch. This trail is a great alternative to the lower part of Bandersnatch and has very little traffic. Bikers seem to try this early in the morning and are seldom seen…

Lizard

Lizard is a great introduction to the two-miles of Jabberwocky that immediately follow. Lizard is a shorter taste of nicely banked turns, doubles, swooping dives and potential for air. The singletrack starts off the upper part of Caterpillar at a somewhat confusing sign. Take the right turn, marked for “Downhill bikes only” which really means bikes in a downhill direction only. Soon, you’ll be cruising down an easy, gentle straightaway that quickly becomes tightly-banked turns and…

Lewis Loops: Gimble

The Gimble Trail starts at the northernmost point along the Lewis Loops Gyre trail. Think of it as a lollipop loop, extending from the Gyre loop. The trail begins by descending along a ridge to the northwest and then turns west, still descending, to where the actual loop begins. Note the bear scratches on madrones. Enjoy filtered views of Mt. Ashland, Wagner Butte, and the Rogue Valley.

Bandersnatch

Bandersnatch

Bandersnatch is probably the most popular forest lands trail in the Ashland watershed. It’s a pedestrian-equestrian trail that starts just off the Waterline Trail near Lithia Park and climbs steeply at times to reach its summit where it crosses the Alice in Wonderland Trail. It then descends on the east side of Alice to connect with JubJub and then joins FS Road 2060. There is a picnic bench with views of Mt Ashland about a…
