Mission Statement

The mission of the Applegate Trails Association (ATA) is to create and preserve non-motorized trails in the Applegate Valley, providing recreational and educational access to public lands while protecting our natural resources. 


Welcome to the Applegate Trails Association

The Applegate Trails Association (ATA) is a non-profit Oregon group formed by community residents to develop a system of hiking, mountain biking and equestrian trails in the mountains of the Applegate Valley.

ATA is cooperating with public land agencies, community organizations, and private landowners to preserve and connect historic trails for future generations.

Our aim is to conserve our valley’s valuable resources―the land, the views, and the biodiversity―for the non-motorized enjoyment of people of all ages and levels of ability.

 

Cfertalaria.jpgThe Applegate Ridge Trail

Join us on a hike along the Applegate Ridge Trail (ART), our first project. As shown on the map, follow the ridges that overlook the Middle Applegate. Be prepared to enjoy the stunning panoramic views of the Applegate River Valley, the Rogue River Valley and beyond. Traverse the trail with serenity as you breathe in the refreshing mountain air and delight in the majestic forests that define the Siskiyou Mountains. Enjoy a journey into history as you imagine how Native Americans and pioneers first experienced this land. Lose yourself in reflection as you walk in the beauty above the Applegate Valley.  

The Applegate Ridge Trail will be accessible from various trailheads in the Applegate and Rogue Valleys. Covering a broad range of ecosystems, our premier trail will showcase the rich flora and fauna of the Middle Applegate. With segments of varying lengths, the trail will appeal to trail lovers of all skill levels.

Join Us!

Because you enjoy hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding and believe in the value of an Applegate trail system, join us in the field. Help us rediscover old trails, build and develop new ones, plan and conduct ATA events, and more. Donations are always appreciated. If you would like to volunteer in any capacity, please call David Calahan at 541-899-1226 or email david@applegatetrails.org.
