Didn’t need snowshoes today. Most of the way you are walking on the road. Beautiful views. A lot of cross country skiers out today. We went early and had the Grouse Gap shelter to ourselves for lunch. We ended up doing about 5.5 miles.

Except for when I was along the road, there was hardly a trail to follow at all. My GPS was dead on to the marked trail route in the app, but it was pretty much bushwhacking through bushes and across fields. Maybe there was once actual trails? But not anymore. On the positive side, the views are stellar, and a short side trip on the PCH was cool.

Trail wasn’t well marked and difficult to find. We ended up hiking on the PCT for a bit which was great. But not the plan

I actually missed part of this trail and ended up on 4015 instead of 30. As soon as you leave the lot stay right if you want to go to the shelter. My route had beautiful solitude and fresh powder . Beautiful area.

I couldn't find the Mount Ashland Meadows trail as an option to review so I'm sticking it here since it ends the Grouse Gap sign. Today was my 2nd time hiking this trail, first time back in November. Much prettier hike today with an abundance and variety of wildflowers blooming! It''s 6.8 miles round trip from the parking are on the main road on the mountain to the Grouse Gap sign and back. Elevation increases and decreases are minimal.

I wouldn’t consider this a stellar hike aside from the views. The trail is basically a road and was very busy during my visit in early June. Looked like Disneyland up there, someone with drone was annoying me by hovering close and it was creepy/really detracted from the scenery. Ended up going down the PCT rather than doing the loop, my dog had a great time despite the crowd and drone stalking us.

We went in mid October and the views of Shasta and the valley were very beautiful! It's an easy hike with lots of trails to explore.

Gorgeous hike today with A-mazing views of Shasta. Trail was only partially snow covered and I made it to the shelter easily with waterproof boots.

half the trail is dirt road with traffic. other half is off trail with many footprints trampling native endangered vegetation. Bad routing. Please put people on PCT instead or reroute up to top of Mt. Ashland.

We went on this hike as part of an orienteering class. Armed with only map and compass we plotted a cross country course to Rabbit Ears and successfully scrambled to the destination.
