Torsten’s Ashland Runs on Trail (TAROT)

Need some run or hike ideas based on distance, vertical or trailhead? You can sort by length, vertical or start by toggling the category. Click on name to bring up a map with profile. On the map, click on red pin to get driving directions. Download the gpx for use with apps like Gaia, Caltopo, onX, etc. YMMV. For more help see: Online Map, Search and TAROT Help.  Also: see the online trail map and route search page. Highlighted routes are suggested for use during logging operation, but check the Project Trails Map for most up-to-date information.

Trick: If you want to see all the routes starting at the plaza in order of length, sort by Start. Then hold the shift key while clicking on length.

The fine print:

  • All mileage and elevation gains are estimates–good estimates–but still estimates based on best available data.
  • Trails and roads may be closed or altered.
  • At the time of this writing, several new and modified trails were in the works that would affect some of these routes.
  • Google driving directions may contain misinformation when it comes to Forest Service roads: check to make sure they make sense.
