Directions to Pilot Rock
The trailhead is several miles south of Ashland, near I-5. Coming from the north, take exit 5 (just north of the OR/CA border). Head towards Mount Ashland, but rather than continuing up the Mount Ashland Road, go under the freeway and continue south on Frontage Road. The trailhead is along Frontage Road, but why hike the trail through cow pastures and private land. Instead, turn left (east) up a gravel road about 1 mile from the I-5 overpass. It is clearly marked with a sign "Pilot Rock Road". Bear right at every cross road and you will reach the base of Pilot Rock in about 2 miles.

Those coming from the California side can take the last exit prior to the border, which I believe is Old Highway 99, and follow their noses to the same gravel road.

While climbing Pilot Rock is not particularly strenuous, it requires some effort. The last part is an old-school scramble up to a very exposed point. Careless people have died here. From the parking lot the route is obvious -- just go uphill. Wear shoes with decent traction as the middle part of the trail is steep, eroded, and gravelly. Continue until you reach a spot right beneath the rock where you will have to cantilever yourself up about 6 feet. It will require some agility to do this. If you can touch your toes, you'll probably be okay. After you get past that point, the work is done. Continue to the rounded top of the rock for views of the Siskiyous, Cascades, and the southern Rogue River valley.
