Favorite Walks

 

FYI - There is a map of downtown Ashland in your cottage. We like to avoid Main Street traffic when we walk to town center. Here’s how we do it:

 

To Ashland’s Downtown Plaza:

Leave CGA and head east along sidewalk to Lori Lane. Walking South along the alley, the fence with the prayer flags is our property boundary. Turn Left on Van Ness (this street will take you into town as far as Oak St. Any street to the right will take you to Main St).

i.e.

Left on Van Ness. Right on N. Laurel. Left onto Central. Right on Water St.

Or Right on Skidmore (towards Minute Mart). Left at the alley. Alley to Helman. Right on Helman. Left on N. Main.

Alternative: Follow Lithia Park (#2) for possibly the most direct route.

 

To OSF:

Walk to Ashland Plaza. Cross the Plaza diagonally. Walk up the stairs located between Lithia Park and the City Building. Arrive at the back of the Angus Bowmer Theater. Continue forward to theater entrances & the Courtyard (the Green Show is presented here).

 

To Ashland Food Coop:

Leave CGA and head east along sidewalk to Lori Lane. Walking South, the fence with the prayer flags is our property boundary. Turn Left on Van Ness. Right on Oak. Left on A Street (entering historic RR District). Right on Pioneer or 1st Street – Food Coop is between.

 

To Historic Rail Road District:

Follow directions towards Ashland Food Coop. Continue walking on A Street.

 

To Lithia Park - Scenic houses and historical trees. Quiet and interesting:

Leave CGA & cross Main St to walk up Weimer St. (Oregon Driver’s code indicates all intersections are to be treated as legal cross walks, even without designation. Regardless, cross with care.). Walk up Weimer. Take first Left onto High St.

#1 At end, turn right on Manzanita St. First Left onto Almond St (becomes Baum St). Continue to Granite Street. At this point, left will take you to the Main/Granite intersection. Right and left again takes you into Lithia Park.

 

#2 At end, turn left on Manzanita St. Turn right on High St. At Granite Street, there is almost hidden stairs that take you to a bridge that crosses Lithia Creek connecting Calle Guanajuato.

Ashland’s Great Outdoors

Ashland nestles in the shadow of a mountain, at the most southern tip of the Rogue River Valley, and it’s at the intersection of two mighty mountain ranges. Running west to east is the Siskiyou Range. Running south-north is the Sierra Nevada-Cascade Range (the name changes when the range is intersected by the Siskiyou Mtns). The flora and fauna species variety at this intersection is considered the most diverse eco-system in north America.
