Trail Information

Ashland Forest Resiliency and the Rogue-River Siskiyou National Forest are conducting a controlled underburn beginning today, Thursday, April 27th and as conditions allow, through Monday, May 1st. The controlled burn and smoke will be highly visible throughout town and the valley. Please avoid the controlled burn area to reduce your smoke exposure and give fire crews room to work.

Affected Areas
Several popular trails are located within the controlled burn area including: Wonder Trail and Fell on Knee. Please avoid using trails from the top of Granite Street on west side of the Ashland Loop Road (USFS 2060). Areas directly affected by the burn or smoke include the west side of the Ashland Loop Road (Forest Road 2060) from the swimming reservoir at Granite Street up to Horn Gap. Trails to avoid include Wonder, Fell on Knee, Ricketty, No Candies, and Horn Gap. Trails to the east of Ashland Creek like Jabberwocky and Bandersnatch are better recreation options. Due to traffic, ongoing burn operations and drifting smoke; please avoid the west side of the watershed. See the map below for burn locations.
