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.

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.

This is a beautiful area, but not great for hikers. There were multiple groups of mountain bikers and we had to be constantly be ready to jump off the trail. If you’re a mountain biker, this is a great trail!

So beautiful! The weather today was perfect for this hike and the views were breathtaking. Pretty easy hike with a few inclines but nothing to difficult. Narrow trails which makes passing people with a dog a little difficult but it wasn’t too busy early in the morning so it was fine. Beautiful hike, I’d definitely recommend it.

Definitely the busiest of the Ashland Watershed trails that I've hiked, and by busy I mean the most people I've ever run into is probably 10. I have to agree with Deborah Dols in that heading out on Lamb Mine is awesome and beautiful and pretty untrafficked. Check it out!

Awesome day for this beautiful hike. Not a lot of traffic. Would love to do again and take the PCT to Mt Ashland.

Both Toothpick and Catwalk are beautiful trails. If you keep going on Toothpick to Land Mine trail, it's a gorgeous- short hike, not a loop though. I think one of the prettiest trails in the area, shady and cool for the most part.

Got a little lost on the southeast sharp turn. Must have missed the sign as I ended up on a little trail which wandered all over...had to bushwhack down to the main trail. Otherwise, a good hike. The north side was lush and cool.
