Trail: We will do this in the opposite direction starting at Grouse Gap and descend to the Rogue River National Forest Boundary Sign.

Beginning at the Rogue River National Forest Boundary Sign on the Mount Ashland access road, the trail begins a gradual ascent along the Southern flanks of Mount Ashland passing through a mixed conifer forest. Interesting granite rock formations are seen along the edge of the trail. Small mountain meadows start to appear, gradually opening to a large cirque basin blanketed with columbine, scarlet, gilia, Indian paintbrush, lupines and mountain gentians. Deer are often seen in this area when flushed from cover in the cool shady draws.

This section of the PCNST ends at Grouse Gap. A nice loop can be completed by hiking along Forest road #20 south, to the Mount Ashland Ski Area and back to your car via the access road.
