We rode recumbents from Blue Heron Park to end of trail in Ashland. The trail ended at sewage and dog park! It is a nice easy ride. Crossed over one road. No homeless issues in this part of ride. A lunch at Clyde’s Corner Restaurant right on the path was fun.
TRAIL NEEDS TO BE DRAGED USING 3 OLD TIRES, CHAINED TOGETHER INA "V" SHAPE, TOWED BEHIND A QUAD OR TRUCK, THIS WILL SMOOTH OUT THE TRAIL, AND GET RID OF ALL THE THICK GRAVEL AREASDO THAT ONCE OR TWICE A YEAR,WOULD MAKE THE TRAI GREAT
I commute along this path all the time as an Ashland resident. The path is short and runs next to the railroad tracks through the Railroad district and up to Hunter Park, through the cemetery to Tolman Creek Rd. Unfortunately, the city of Ashland is not really in tune with taking care of its bike paths and bike lanes. The bike path, much like the Ashland bike lanes on the streets, is rarely swept--especially after they drop gravel in the winter. Also, the city recently used chip seal to resurface the path. Chip seal is inexpensive for the city, but it is a horrible surface for riding. That said, the view out to Grizzly Peak is a great view for a local commute.
We jumped on the trail near Ashland (stayed at the Lithia Springs Hotel). We rode the trail northwest to the town of Phoenix and back, with a short ride on the way back to the edge of Ashland. About 14 miles total. Small sections near the highway are noisy but most of the trail is through forested area next to a stream, even saw some deer. Very safe, well maintained and basically flat, so pretty easy. Highly recommend.
We only made it 6 miles on the dirt. Very bumpy like an old dirt two track.
Just rode the paved section on a recumbent trike with a strong suspension, but absorbed quite a beating by the deep/wide cracks in the asphalt. They get easier to handle the further you ride east. The west end of the trail has been transformed into a homeless encampment, so don’t bother going there. If the pavement were better and went beyond Olene this would be a world-class bicycle trail. As it is, it is a bit of a disappointment.
Good ride from Phoenix exit 24 to right before hawthorn park, was cornered in by some individuals from both angles along with the countless homeless by the bridge.. will never go thru hawthorn park again!!!
Had a fun time cruising this trail. In some parts there are quite a few homeless people which is a side of the city some people might find uncomfortable. Also you are close to the freeway the whole time. Positives are it’s an easy trail that even kids can do that goes a long way. The creek is beautiful and there are some nice natural areas all along the trail. I will do it again for sure.
I rode the trail from Klamath Falls almost to Dairy. The paved portion was OK. The road crossings have crosswalk lights at some, and you have to yield at others. The cinder portion of the trail was awful. I have ridden on about twenty rail to trail paths around the country, and the cinder portion of this trail was the worst, loose and bumpy. I was riding a cyclocross bike with 33mm slightly knobby tires. A mountain bike with knobby fat tires would have been better, but probably not fun.
The paved section of the trail has countless seams that are pretty rough, and doesn’t necessarily border the better neighborhoods in Klamath Falls. We rode an additional seven miles on the unpaved section. It was hard packed dirt with ruts either from cow or horse tracks, that will rattle your teeth. The highlight of the trail is the Chicken & Cheers Pub. Nick serves up some great food and beer!
A beautiful trail along Bear Creek. Since the fires of 9/2020, the views of the creek south of Medford are gorgeous... some I’d never seen before because of the brush and blackberries. You also get a firsthand look at the devastation caused by the fires. The section through Medford does have a large amount of homeless camps and people on or near the path. Use caution when approaching underpasses because people tend to congregate and you don’t want to have a crash. North of Medford there are fewer camps and the trail stays between the freeway and creek up to the northern terminus.
Shame on the people who review this badly because of the middle of the trail. Just bought this for the first time from dog Park to Valley view Road. It is truly lovely. Some fire damage but frankly Datz the life we have right now. Just so you know I resisted this path because of the reviews it’s a great path, but don’t goFarther than you are comfortable
