Description

People tend to love or hate this trail because of its steep nature and many switchbacks. Starting from the White Rabbit Trail on the west side, take a right onto Queen of Hearts to reach the Uhtoff Trail.

Proceeding east, the trail begins a rolling gently and sometimes steeply down, eventually reaching the top of the White Rabbit Trail, where a bench offers a little respite before the relatively steep switchback descent into Oredson-Todd Woods. Several offshoots of the Uthoff Trail connect to the White Rabbit Trail affording many loop opportunities. Views of Grizzly Peak, Emigrant Lake, and the Rogue Valley may be the reward for the many switchbacks. Beware of poison oak on the edges of the trail, particularly on this switchback section.

Flora & Fauna

Oak, madrones.
