The Mt. Ashland Hill Climb travels 13.3 miles, kicking off in Lithia Park, located in stunning downtown Ashland, Oregon. Throughout your journey, you’ll traverse tree-canopied dirt trails and roads, reaching the finish line at the summit of Mt. Ashland. The start is at 1,900 feet elevation – the finish at 7,533 feet elevation. When you reach the finish line, you will have traveled over a vertical mile high – more than 5,600 feet of climbing. Now that is something to brad about! Check out the detailed course description, but have a towel handy as you are likely to drool – it’s pretty awesome.
Additionally, the Mt. Ashland Hill Climb is a fundraising event for Ashland Woodlands and Trails Association, with all event proceeds going to this wonderful organization. As noted on the website, Ashland Woodlands and Trails Association is in the process of working on a Trails Master Plan for the Ashland watershed trails. This is important, worthwhile work that will benefit generations to come.
Entry fees are currently $40 as of July 1st. If sold out this year – make sure to watch it for 2017!
