Chetco Divide / Vulcan Peak Trailhead    Visitors to the Kalmiopsis Wilderness should be advised that trail conditions may vary, depending on the level of maintenance performed in the years after the Biscuit (2002), Chetco Bar (2017) and Klondike (2018) Fires. Due to the scales of these fires, and the rugged and remote conditions in the Kalmiopsis, trail work, while ongoing, has not been performed on all the trails within the fire perimeters. Visitors may find downed trees across the trails, dense vegetation where shrubs have grown in after the fire, and unmarked trail junctions in some places. Please check with the Gold Beach or Wild Rivers Ranger Districts before your visit for trail conditions. Additionally, you can visit the Siskiyou Mountain Club's page, a local group who performs much of the trail maintenance in wilderness areas.

Until the slide is cleared, please use the following route to get to Vulcan Lake:  Know Before You Go: The last three miles of this route is rutted and poorly maintained.  Moderate clearance vehicles can make the journey but low clearance vehicles will have significant issues.  The last mile to the Wilderness Boundary is particularly rocky and narrow with minimal pullouts. Note: Snow is often blocking the road just short of the Chetco Divide/Vulcan Peak Trailhead into late spring.  Visitors to the Kalmiopsis Wilderness should be advised that trail conditions may vary, depending on the level of maintenance performed in the years after the Biscuit (2002), Chetco Bar (2017) and Klondike (2018) Fires. Due to the scales of these fires, and the rugged and remote conditions in the Kalmiopsis, trail work, while ongoing, has not been performed on all the trails within the fire perimeters.

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. bikes riding uphill only).

This watershed houses the source of Ashland's drinking water. Please: Recreate responsibly! 

  • Honor trail designations. Remember: Bikes yield to Pedestrians, and everyone yields to Equestrians!
  • Motorized use, including e-bikes, is prohibited behind gates and on all trails.
  • Protect the wildlife that call this watershed home.
  • Pack out all of your waste—Leave No Trace! This includes your dog's bagged waste, too!
  • Camping and campfires are prohibited in the watershed 365 days a year.
