Siskiyou Upland Trails works toward a vision of connected trails

Trails abound in our region, but it's not like you can get from every place to every other place via hiking trail... yet. Siskiyou Upland Trails Association has long worked on connecting trails in the high country west of Interstate Five.

The main goal is the completion of the Jack-Ash Trail, connecting Jacksonville and Ashland by a trail far removed from the main paved roads.

Joy Rogalla is the President of SUTA, and our guest, accompanied by Jameson Whitehead, a park ranger with the Bureau of Land Management. We explore the overall trail network vision, and what it takes to execute it.

June 1st is National Trails Day, with a 9 AM ceremony planned to celebrate the opening of five more miles of trail in the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail system.
