“A connecting trail between FS Road 2060 and Caterpillar Trail and Catwalk Trail and Tolman Creek Rd.”— Torsten Heycke
Toothpick connects to Catwalk and Caterpillar Trail and Tolman Creek and FS 2060 roads, so various loops are possible. Cross 2060 to get to the Lamb Mine Ditch Trail.
Toothpick is often cool when other trails are hot. Lush ferns and large ponderosas and douglas firs populate the sides of the trail. Views of Ashland and Mt. Mcloughlin poke through in places.
This is a popular hiking and mountain biking trail. Bikers descending from Mt. Ashland often use this trail (after Catwalk) and will often show up in groups, so pedestrians may experience a bolus of bikers and then none. Keep your head up and your headphones off. Equestrians use this trail occasionally.
