  • June 13th, 2017: Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, Oregon - w/ Author Eli Boschetto

    The Pacific Crest Trail Season has arrived!

    Join author Eli Boschetto and the Ashland Outdoor Store for Eli's slide-show presentation of his book "Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, Oregon: Section Hiking from Donomore Pass to Bridge of the Gods".

    *The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) stretches for 2,650 miles, from the California–Mexico border to the Washington–Canada border. In Oregon, the PCT runs for 455 miles from Donomore Pass to the Columbia River. Here, it traverses oak woodlands, old-growth forests, alpine environs and volcanic plateaus. People hike the PCT for a variety of reasons: as a vision quest, to challenge themselves, or just to escape into the wilderness for a while. The nice thing about the PCT in Oregon, is that it can be hiked by just about anyone.

  • May 18th, 2017: Siskiyou Mountain Club: May Rendezvous - Kalmiopsis, Ten Years & Counting

    Time: May 19th, 6:30-8pm

    Location: The Ashland Outdoor Store

    "In 2006, I stepped foot into the Kalmiopsis Wilderness for the first time, and my life hasn’t been the same since. The Kalmiopsis hasn’t been the same since, either.

    Since then, I’ve led a community driven effort to save a large part of a 153 mile trail system that had been written off, forsaken by the status quo, and left to disappear. Through that course, I’ve seen a lot of places, met a lot of characters, and even gotten myself into a little trouble.

    So come hear my stories from 10 years defined by challenge, success, failure, and a stubborn spirit shaped by this rugged and unforgiving terrain.

    …and hear a secret that I’ve been holding onto for over a decade now.”

    – Gabriel Howe
    Executive Director
