Beautiful views! Can’t wait to go back

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

It’s kinda cool if you like heavily traveled granite trails that lead to manmade cellphone towers.
There are some good views along the way. My concern is it’s intensity rating of “hard.” Sure, there’s inclines (it’s a mountain) but unless you’re walking the trail on your hands, it’s no big deal.
Worth the 45 minutes up and back on a lazy Sunday morning.

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.

We like the trails.

Current fire closures have Shane Creek road closed. Don't waste a trip out there. Be safe, hike smart.

Beautiful hike with nice even trails and loads of butterflies and wildflowers. We hiked in thinking the weather was fine and then a lightning storm came through. Not the safest place to be for that, but the dark and wild sky with the clearing at the lookout was surreal. I will definitely hike this again next time I'm in town.

Trail was slightly overgrown, the amount bumblebees and flies was insane! Considering the whole valley is on fire to the west the smoke was minimal.

Cons: Trail head was not marked and hard to find. The trail was narrow and poison oak was almost impossible to avoid. Because of the poison oak I turned around and went back to the car after half a mile.

Pros: The water made this a wonderful hike on a hot summer day. The area is serene and peaceful. I would highly recommend this trail if it was better maintained.

Easy hike in a beautiful old growth forest.

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.

it was very nice hike

An extraordinarily beautiful and rewarding hike. Not too difficult, but medium length. Make sure you’re acclimated!
Tough drive in, need four wheel drive and a resilient stomach

Very nice and diverse trail. Loads of wildflowers, butterflies, birds, excellent views. Lush green forest opens up to some mountain meadows, then drier open hillside showing wildfire effects from several years ago. Saw a baby black bear on the way up to the trailhead. All around well worth it and good for kids.

Did this my kids, my two year old walked most the way! View is fantastic! Recommend starting in the early morning. Took us a little over 3 hours.

The trail system is behind the Britt grounds. It's across the highway if you park by the library. Wildflowers are everywhere early spring. Watch for poison oak in summer! It's a nice mix of hills and flat.

I very much enjoyed the beautiful hike.
such beauty,the greenery, the falls.just beautiful! I did take a couple deer trails,the last bit as I was finishing the hike was a bit confusing,but managed just fine.I will go again,my sister went with me the second time I went and we will definitely go back. it's only a 15 min. drive from my home to Limpy.

Diverse terrain. It starts in the forest and opens up. Lots of wildflowers late into the season. No grizzlies, but I did see a black bear a couple of years ago!

I love coming here and going off the trail to explore. Very beautiful and relaxing with the sound of little waterfalls all over, and I've had the fortune of not running into anyone here. The only problem is that sometime over the last winter the road is too much for my low clearance vehicle to go through.

Fantastic hike with beautiful views. Easy to find. Summit trail is marked but then unmarked. We never knew if we actually reached the summit. Hiked this with two city-fide ten year olds. My only disappointment was the lack of real grizzlies to eat these boys and give me a moment of rural peace.

Fun trail to run with some decent climbing and roller coaster twisty turny switch backs. We went on a Tuesday morning and had no trouble with the trail being crowded but I could see it being an issue with lots of bikes on the weekend. Great trail for off peak hours.

Never been up to the lookout. I felt it was worth the drive. Definitely a long gravel drive up the mountain. Once at the parking area it’s just a hike up the rest of the gated gravel road to the top. The view was pretty amazing though and even though the lookout had been vandalized it was still worth checking out. I brought my 11 year old son and a couple of his friends and they enjoyed it as well

We get just under 5.5 miles for the loop based on our GPS record. Always a lovely hike and the trail is in superb condition.

This would be a nice hike if it weren't for the rude and dangerous mountain bikers. It is called Toothpick for a reason, very narrow often with no room on either side and the bikers come flying down the hill not even having the decency to tell you there are others behind them. Definitely not good for taking your dog.

I have little respect for these bikers.

Good short hike

Very interesting drive. The 1st 10 miles no trespassing signs everywhere you look. Once you got higher snowparks everywhere. Quite a few lakes around as well. First time I had seen Lake of the Woods. Came back out 140 with even more lakes.

Really enjoyed the trail. A lot of awesome manzanita, madrone and oak trees. The trail itself is nice and flat hard pan with a little sand. It appears to be built by mountain bikers because of the formaation and high banks on some of the sharp switchbacks. Just discovered this trail system today and will be back many times.

Enjoyable with a great hard packed base among the oaks, manzanita and madrones. Nice the dog can run free...

great short loop trail with plenty of picturesque spots to stop and enjoy a waterfall or snap a photo of the forest. also dog friendly!

quite a crazy drive all the way up. The lookout is no longer maintained and you aren't supposed to access it by vehicle but it can be done with 4×4 or on foot. The top has the most majestic 360 views, and there are lots of beautiful places to stop along the way and hike or take in the view.
