Grizzly Peak sits 15 minutes from Ashland, rising some 5900 feet above sea level, more than half of it above the valley floor.
The hike was in the middle of a forested area, surrounded by tall trees, lush grasses, and colorful wildflowers. Most of the 5.5 mile hike was covered in trees, but every now and then were beautiful vistas. Some were enhanced by the Antelope Fire which burned 1500 acres in 2003.
Sarah Schueler, morning show producer, was also on the trail. There were a bunch of other hikers-- families, dog-walkers, old folks on wildflower tours.
A fantastic midday hike with fantastic views.
