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.
From Ashland or to central point or. approx. 18 miles. Hard surface, no gravel, no dirt. Partly shaded. Flat. Scenic, except last few miles, near Central Point. Homeless camped near path around Medford but no hassle. Rating should be
4 1/2 rather than 5, due to homeless.
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!
Some of the reviews are talking about the Bear creek greenway trail... this is the Rogue River Trail and it is a quiet, beautiful ride along the river. You can easily connect to the bike path at the south end of this trail and ride into the town of Gold Hill. The entire trip from the town of Rogue River, through Valley of The Rogue State Park (camping available) to Gold Hill is an excellent biking/waking route.
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.
Rode the 7.5 miles from start of trail in Ashland to Phoenix and back. The trail itself is great. Nice and wide, place to pull off and rest if desired, nice views of the creek and hills. Can still see the devastation from the Alameda fire that took place in August 2020. Sad to see all the house destroyed but nice to see the new construction taking place. When the vegetation and trees come back the trail will be even nicer. Did not encounter any homeless camps on this section of the trail. Saw lots along sections of the trail in Medford and Central Point areas. Look forward to going back when the weather warms up.
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
