White Rabbit - Trail, Ashland, Oregon

DESCRIPTION

not too tough of a trail but it is fun. it has its share of uphill but once you hit the top its all downhill. theres only one pretty long steep part but then there is just a lot of turning and fun. great ride not to hard.

Since I live nearby and ride this frequently, I feel I need to add my 2 cents. This is a fairly popular trail with hikers, so even though there is the adjacent hiker-only Mike Uthoff Trail, I try to get on White Rabbit early in the morning if I want to ride it on a weekend.
Going up the trail from the east, it is almost all non-technical except for a couple very short rocky/rooty sections, two short staircases, and one short super-steep hill.
From Oredson Todd trailhead parking, it is 2 miles up to the top near the Loop Road, and the trail gains 1100 feet of elevation. There is a quarter-mile downhill section one and a half miles from the trailhead, followed by the final climb to the top. At the high point is a 3-way intersection with Caterpillar trail and Queen of Hearts. The trailhead parking on the Loop Road is just downhill to the north-west.

I like to ride up single track, so this review describes the ride from the east. There is parking at the Oredson-Todd trailhead on Lupine drive. Access to White Rabbit from Park Street is good too, but there is no parking there. Another common way to ride this trail is to pedal up the Loop Road to the gate and ride down White Rabbit.

From the high point of the White Rabbit trail there are several good options. 1: Go up Queen of Hearts, stay right at an unmarked fork to ride Toad over a small summit with a view and rejoin White Rabbit at the top of the first 1.5 mile climb. 2: Go down to the Loop Road and descend it, Alice in Wonderland, Pepsi, or BTI. 3: Go south up Caterpillar to where it crosses the Loop Road, then descend Jabberwocky or keep going up to Toothpick, Four Corners, Marty's, on towards Bull Gap and Mt Ashland, etc etc!

Despite what others say this is not an easy trail - nor is it much fun. If you come up the park st side it is a brutal climb with many bike and hike parts (including some steps - this is more for hiking than biking). The trail is also severely damaged in places with many ruts. Maybe its easier from the other side but with all the hikers I passed I would imagine it would be much fun coming down the narrow single track I came up with all the blind spots.

My advice if you are in the area is leave the bike behind and go whitewater rafting instead...

Really fun trail, a lot of switchbacks and very rocky with a few small jumps. Beautiful view at the top where you can see all of Ashland from a bird's eye view.

Check out all of the trails in the Ashland watershed while you're in the area, you can get a map at any of the Ashland bike shops on Siskiyou Blvd.

Awesome view of Mt. Ashland and Emigrant lake. I was pretty gassed after the ascent from town, but it made the panorama and downhill all the more fun!

somewhere past milemarker 12 or so Tolman Creek road turns into a dirt road. Hopped onto an unidentified trail that had trees marked with a bunch of blue spray paint. Tons of switch backs and pretty challenging for a newbie like me! Eventually drops you back onto the Ashland Loop road where you connect with White Rabbit.

Totally novice-worthy. If you're new to the sport like me, this is an excellent start!
