This Ashland trail starts above Lithia Park and connects with the Ashland Loop Road beyond the gate at the upper trailhead. One option is to continue towards the Lamb Saddle before connecting with the Caterpillar Trail, then the Alice in Wonderland Trail, the Bandersnatch Trail, ultimately retracing our steps on the Red Queen Trail. The first 3 miles is an overall moderate elevation gain of 1050 feet. The total distance would be about 6.2 miles. Bring water and snacks.
