Central Ashland Bikepath Reviews

Nice Short Path through Ashland

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.

Fun way to travel around in Medford

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.
