Grizzly Peak Trail

Jun 3, 2022


This 35 minute drive starts south through town on Main Street/Siskiyou towards Southern Oregon University. Turn left on Ashland Street towards Interstate 5. Don”™t get on the Interstate! Go over it! The road sweeps to the right and you will hit an intersection for Dead Indian Road. Turn left on Dead Indian Road and head uphill into the mountains for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye to your left for the Forest Service sign saying Shale City Road and Grizzly Peak. That dirt road will hit 3 other dirt intersections so follow the Grizzly Peak signs. There are great signs, do not fear. Finally you will dead end into a 2 tiered dirt parking lot.

From Ashland head east on Hwy 66, about 1/4 mile east of Hwy 5, turn Left onto Dead Indian Memorial Road.

Continue on Dead Indian Memorial Road for about 6.4 miles.

Turn Left onto Shale City Road. From here the way to Grizzly Peak is marked. There are at least 2 forks in the road, just follow the signs.

Indoor pool/sauna comes with toys for your kids. Very close to downtown but the safeway is right across the street so it makes it easy to get food and beverages.

The staff made the stay exceptional. Room and common areas are very nice, but the friendly and accommodating team created a 5 star stay.

This is a very convenient location with parking. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with refrigerator and microwave. It was mostly clean (bathtub walls needed some attention) and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Their grab-and-go breakfast was better than most. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
