Ashland Watershed Trails


Runners in Ashland Watershed

The 15,000+ acre Ashland Municipal Watershed is home to more than 45 miles of multi-use trails for hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians, and is an international destination for the unique beauty and diversity of the forests and Siskiyou Mountains.

Trails are marked according to user group appropriate, and some trails are also directional in nature (e.g. bikers only riding uphill).

This watershed houses the source of Ashland's drinking water, so we ask that you recreate responsibly! 

  • Honor trail designations. Remember: Bikes yield to Pedestrians, and everyone yields to Equestrians!
  • Protect the wildlife that call this watershed home.
  • Pack out all of your waste—Leave No Trace!
  • Camping and campfires are prohibited in the watershed 365 days a year.

Partner organizations who us help maintain, manage, and promote this trail system include:
