Drove up to do this trail today and the road was closed due to the Hendrix Fire

Super secluded so you’ll probably have the trail to yourself. Totally worth the drive up the mountain to the trail head. Some seriously cool spots along this trail.

This trail was tough! It’s pretty much straight up the entire way. Beautiful trail, my dog loved it

It is a well maintained path with some great views of Ashland and surroundings. I recommend starting at the trailhead off Park Street. We started at the top trailhead and had uphill return.

Great trail. So much cooler than the valley. Lots of shade. Love being at the top lookout.

Beautiful meadows of sage, corn lillies and lupin, forests of evergreens and aspens, andcamazing views of shasta, mt ashland, pilot rock and mcloughlin in the last two miles to the peak. I call the top Cafe Wagner because it’s a great place for lunch.

I loved this trail. The first two to three miles are the hardest but then it smooths out a little just in time for the views. Finished by 10 am on what is supposed to be quite a hot day but there was plenty of shade. I was the first one on the trail this morning, so I ate most of the spider webs (so don’t be first if that bothers you). Great views the whole way up but nothing compares to the views at the top.

Did it twice this year in the month of July. I believe Soda mountain road (to get to the pct ) is closed. So don't waste a trip out there! Beautiful hike with lots of views

Wow. It’s as good as everyone has been saying on here. Definitely not easy. So much of it’s uphill. But the views are amazing. I did this and Crater Lake while I was in the area, and it was a perfect two day combination.

We enjoyed the views and variety of trees. The climb was a nice challenge with a smooth ground. It was easy to follow the signs even though there were many trails that crossed over the white rabbit trail. The trail was fairly well shaded which was nice. A nice. quick little hike, it took us 2 hours, 15 min.

Very limited parking on a very steep street.

Great hike! So beautiful and not crowded! The views of the taller peaks and valleys from the top are excellent.

the directions for this are terrible through all trails. it's easier to reach trail 1034 to woodruff bridge from the natural bridge hike. start out at the natural bridge scenic area parking lot. start out on the trail head for scenic, and shortly on the left you will see a wooden sign/ trail marker for woodruff bridge trail 1034. taking this trail will take you to knob falls. then you can swing back and go on a very short hike to see the natural bridge lava the formation.
the directions listed by all trails takes you down a much more complex trail which I found out was blocked by downed trees.

Easy to moderate trail in the spring and summertime. My pup loves it best.

Beautiful hike. There before the bugs hatch. Had to turn around at the river. Running too fast and it was 36 degrees out. Plan on bringing some kind of shoe for fording across. One of my favorite hikes. Snow free to the river.

Great length for all. Relatively easy until last 1/2 mike when it starts getting steep. To scramble to the top of the rock takes just a bit of rock climbing.

Easy to moderate, well marked trail. Spectacular 360 views, perfect place for a picnic. No snow mid-May 2018. Great reward to effort ratio!

Beautiful trail; runs through a small patch of lava flow near the beginning, then hits the creek. You have to ford the creek before climbing up to some gorgeous views!

A few muddy spots in spring, but a great hike for kids (ages 5 & 9) and leashed dogs. Flowers, mountain views and butterflies this time of year.

Decent elevation gain but not hard by any means

Don’t use google maps to get you there because it won’t lead you to the correct spot. You will need to drive through a creek with a high clearance 4x4. Besides that it is a great hike worth any amount of hassle to get there. Do yourself a favor and hike the entire trail to the peak. The view will pay you back.

Beautiful. You can also start from Mt Ashland.

We explored here in May and the weather could not have been more perfect. At first we drove past the designated parking area, wondering what was further down the road. If you do that, it will take you to the other smaller lake that has a trail, but not around the whole lake like the other one. We didn't stay long at this spot, just long enough to check out the first picnic spot by the lake which was filled with bugs. So we got back in the car and went back to the designated parking area and walked down towards the big lake (pretty short walk).

The first opening at the lake had great views, but again, tons of bugs. There was also a LOT of dog poop, so I took some time to pick it all up so my kids didn't have to worry about stepping in it. The dog and kids played in the water a bit here and then we decided to start the walk around the lake. I wish we would have walked to the right earlier, because there are much better spots to relax and swim at. And there were hardly any bugs flying in our face at the other spots.

We walked around the whole lake and noticed 4 different spots with rope swings. They are in spots best suited for ages 10 and up in my opinion. But still fun to at least check out, even with little kids. I thought spot #9 was the prettiest swing spot. The water was pretty clear here and we could see lots of fish swimming around.

We had the place all to ourselves and had so much fun. If you are going in the spring or summer, don't forget your bug spray!

Beautiful views.

Always stunning views!

great hike! well worth the distance

roads up to parking area are clear although the lot is full of water.

start the hike with switch backs, level out then ascend a seeming never ending incline. Rest assured once you hit sheeps creek slide it gets easier incline wise. Snow free until wagner glade, ranging from 1 inch to 18 inches of snow in some area. Most of the bootpack is solid but some steps send you post holing. great views at the top. not very rocky

enjoy and sign the log at the top

went there in the middle of April, not a soul to be found. kinda creepy considering it's super far out in the woods. but was a good run. can be a bit hard to find, no cell service. just follow Maps and it should bring u right to it

Great trail with awesome views but was a little challenging to navigate with so many trails attaching to the main trail. Parts are very uphill!! Quiet trail, well maintained.

Absolutely amazing views! One of my favorite hikes and a great one to do when you've just got a few hours and need to get out on a trail.
