This short documentary follows two of our board members, Luke Ruediger and Josh Weber, on an 80-mile thru-hike that took place in May 2016. Our goal was to turn this bushwhacking adventure into a film that would raise awareness about the beauty of our region while building support for the proposed Applegate Ridge Trail.
The film follows their route from downtown Ashland, Oregon, over the still snow-covered summit of Wagner Butte, across the arid slopes of Anderson Butte, though the Dakubetede roadless area, to the rugged foothills of the Wellington Butte Wildlands (outside Ruch, Oregon), and finally to the Cathedral Hills trails system south of Grants Pass, Oregon.
