From Ashland head east on Hwy 66, about 1/4 mile east of Hwy 5, turn Left onto Dead Indian Memorial Road. Continue on Dead Indian Memorial Road for about 6.4 miles. Turn Left onto Shale City Road. From here the way to Grizzly Peak is marked. There are at least 2 forks in the road, just follow the signs.

It was beautiful up here. The flowers are in bloom, and the temperature drops and the views clear. The roads are well marked to get here, just be careful of the giant sink hole potholes. When I came up here there was NO indication there was anything wrong, but when we started on the trail there was just a piece of STOP DANGEROUS tape across the trail blocking it and several forestry trucks parked at the entrance. Would have been nice for a trail closed sign somewhere? I will come back up to do this hike again.

Well laid out and maintained. Great little lollipop trail close in to town. Go out early and avoid the crowds :-)

Trail is well maintained. wear long pants and long sleeves if you do not want to get stung! lots of bees due to flowers. the trail will take you straight to a beautiful view, but that is not the end of the hike. Go back to the way you came from and go left to follow the trail to the burnt trees and the views there are amazing as well.

We hiked this trail today with multiple generations, spanning 60-something to 4 and a half. Everyone had a terrific time! Lots of wildflowers in bloom (for iNaturalist users, I logged 48 observations - birds, butterflies, and plants, primarily - during the hike). The Vista views on the loop trail were every bit as spectacular as we hoped. This is a great, fun, family trail - we'll be back soon!
