This area is Open
 

Located in the Rogue-Umpqua Divide Wilderness, Grasshopper Mountain Trail #1574 connects Acker Divide Trail #1437 to Lakes Trail #1578 near Cliff Lake. Along the way, the trail passes through old-growth forests, lush Grasshopper Meadow, and drier ridgetop meadows. It also provides access to Grasshopper Mountain Trail #1580, which goes to a former fire lookout site and is well worth the 0.75-mile detour.
