New trail opens in the Applegate

JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. – A new trail is open in the Applegate just in time for summer adventures.

The new Tallowbox Trail provides spectacular views of the Siskiyou Crest and Upper Applegate Watershed.

Additionally, rare flowers only found in the Applegate area can be spotted along the path. The trail also has an optional detour to the top of Tallowbox Mountain.

The Applegate Siskiyou Alliance worked with community partners and volunteers to shape the backcountry trail.

The path is described as relatively strenuous, spanning 4.2 miles one way and climbing 2,000 feet in elevation.

For the best directions to the trailhead, visit the Applegate Siskiyou Alliance’s website.
