SPEND THE WEEKEND!
Ashland, Southern Oregon’s cultural jewel, just four miles from Emigrant Lake Park, offers a plethora of activities, from theatre, music, endless dining options, wine tasting and even mountain biking and hiking opportunities. Riders can make arrangements to camp at Emigrant Lake or explore numerous lodging choices in Ashland, from B&Bs to a variety of downtown hotels, convenient for exploring Ashland on foot. Another option is The Green Springs Inn, a state-designated bike-friendly business 14 miles from Ashland along the course of the Up & Down. Don’t miss Lithia Park, a 93-acre jewel along cool, rushing Ashland Creek, designated as one of the top ten Great American Spaces by the American Planning Associaton in 2014.
This year Emigrant Lake Park has reserved 40 tent sites at their Oak Slope Campground for Up & Down riders. We also have 10 reserved RV spaces. Riders must call Emigrant Lake before June 15 at (541) 774-8183 to reserve these sites.
Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites has once again offered a discounted room rate for the bike ride weekend. King rooms are $149 and queen-queen rooms are $159, with continental breakfast included as well as a discount at the in-house Luna Cafe. Call (541) 482-8310 to reserve a room and mention the Up & Down.
We recommend that if you are coming from out of town and planning a hotel or B&B stay, reserve early.Plan Your Weekend Here!
