Alice in Wonderland


Alice in Wonderland

The Alice in Wonderland trail is part of the Ashland Watershed Trail system and is an nice option for those looking for a hike right from town. The trail itself is fairly short, perhaps 20 – 25 minutes to traverse, but if you leave from town it will take roughly 45 minutes to an hour to reach the end of the trail after walking up the roads to reach the trailhead.

This trail is a also a wonderful option if you’d like to combine it with other trails, including the White Rabbit Trail, Caterpillar trail, or the Bandersnatch trail.

If you are heading from town, you can expect to spend the “to” portion of the hike heading uphill almost the entire way, while the “fro” portion will, of course, head downhill.

This is also used as a mountain biking trail, so please proceed with caution as you hike the trail.

Difficulty: Moderate

Directions: From the downtown plaza, head southeast down Main St. to Pioneer St. Take a right and head up just past the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and at the fork, follow the center road, the appropriately-named Fork St.  Continue along Fork St. above Lithia Park, where it will turn into Glenview Dr. Before Lithia Park ends, take a left and head uphill on Ashland Loop Rd. When you see Ashland Loop Rd. intersect with Morton St. continue up Ashland Loop Rd a few hundred feet where you’ll see the Alice in Wonderland trailhead on the right.
