Burning will continue this spring under optimal conditions.  Expect some impacts to Toothpick Trail.  Check controlled burning in relation to town roads and trails on our burn map.  View Ashland's air quality.  

Helicopter logging began Friday, February 24th, 2017 in the Ashland Watershed and continue through June 30th.  Some of the 50 miles of trails located in the Ashland Watershed will be closed.

New! View a geo-referenced map of the closure area.  The closure map can be downloaded into Avenza Maps for mobile use in the watershed.  

See a list of the trail and roads to know where you can explore the watershed.

Read the official closure order from the United States Forest Service.  

For your own personal safety and to avoid fines, please check our website for updates and maps.
Restored Forest in the Ashland Watershed
Trail users can expect to see and hear the work of the Ashland Forest Resiliency Stewardship Project (AFR) taking place in the watershed during weekdays and some weekends.  Please read our work update for the latest information.
  • See maps provided on this website.
  • Check the City Website to download and print maps to trails you want to visit.
  • Check the map of burn locations to see controlled burns in relation to town, roads and trails.
  • A map of all existing, authorized trails is available at the Parks and Recreation Department at 340 S Pioneer Street in Lithia Park and costs $3.

Hikers, bikers, and equestrians should take caution:
  • Road traffic from work vehicles traveling roads throughout the watershed.   Trucks and vans are traveling up Tolman Creek Road to Four Corners, the 2060 Road plus other forest service roads.
  • Workers cutting and piling brush along roads and trails on the East side of the watershed near Tolman Creek.
  • Postings at popular trailheads indicate trail/road closures and offer alternatives.    
Using closed trails could result in serious injury please read the information below!
  • Trail closures indicate trees will be falling on or across trails. 
  • Never remove signs or markers for closures. 
  • We re-open trails when work is complete. 
Stay Informed!
Please check this website regularly ( to find latest trail closures, and look out for postings at trailheads. You can receive notifications regarding trail closures by "liking" us on Facebook at or by signing up for the AFR email list at and clicking the “Notify Me” button​

Additional Information
  • The AFR project work creates more open conditions in a significant portion of the lower watershed.  Please do not cut new trails or establish ‘pirate’ trails.   
  • Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest and the City of Ashland have partnered with the Ashland Woodlands and Trails Association, and user groups to create a master trail plan for the watershed. 
  • Hikers and bikers are asked to use caution during project periods.  Do not create new trails because they can impact fragile habitats for plants and animals as well as degrade watershed soils.  
  • Additional information and maps are available on the Forest Service website and the City of Ashland website .
Interpretive Signs
Look for interpretive signs at the Lamb Mine trailhead, Four Corners, the White Rabbit parking area, and near the Lithia Swim Reservoir. Each sign location has a map, regulatory information, brochures and updates, and a different message pertaining to fire ecology, ecological monitoring, natural processes, and workforce development. Take a tour of your watershed by bike or foot and read them all!
