Lithia Park Hiking

Centrally located next to Ashland’s main plaza, Lithia Park offers a wide range of walking and hiking trails to explore. As you enter the park from the plaza, the sidewalks will pass by some open lawn space, a duck pond, a playground, bathrooms and along Ashland Creek.

Eventually the sidewalk will turn into a trail and it will offer occasional options to turn left and uphill to a series of trails. Follow these trails south along the direction of the flowing creek to end at the reservoir, perhaps for a cooling summer swim.

If your adventure takes you uphill, the trails will lead to you to the roads above Lithia Park. If you veer left once you reach the top, the roads will lead you back to town or to tranquil neighborhoods with great views of the Cascades.

If you choose to turn right on the road, you can continue south to the reservoir – or you could head uphill on Ashland Loop Rd. to the Alice in Wonderland trailhead if you desire a longer hike.
