Grizzly Peak Trail

A short hike that is long on rewards awaits you on the Grizzly Peak Trail, located within the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. This family-friendly trail, located 12 miles east of Ashland, winds through a mixed forest of fir and pine, passes through the remnants of a wildfire, and provides outstanding views of the Rogue Valley and the city of Ashland. Be sure to continue on the loop trail past the top of 5,922-foot Grizzly Peak for the best views on the hike. Clear days offer outstanding views of the Cascade Mountains, including Mt. McLoughlin, Mt. Shasta, and Diamond Peak. In early summer, wildflowers put on a spectacular show along the trail.
