Hike Description

Hike Description

Known to locals simply as the "Britt Trails," the Jacksonville Woodlands Historic Natural Park features 14 miles of interpretive trails open to both hikers and mountain bikers.

At only 0.6 miles in length, the hike up to Panorama Point via the Oregon Trail is the park's most popular because it's accessible to hikers of all ages and features scenic views of the adjacent Siskyou Mountains, historic downtown Jacksonville, and the Southern Oregon Cascades, including the rim of Crater Lake and 9,495-foot Mount McLoughlin. Along this short trail you'll find stands of young ponderosa pines, Pacific madrones, greenleaf manzanita, and Oregon white oak.

Starting with the purchase of the Beekman Woods in the early 1990s, the Jacksonville Woodlands Association and the University of Oregon teamed together to preserve Jacksonville's remaining close-in natural open space and the sites of what was the west coast's most prosperous collection of gold mines in the mid-1800s. Combined with the 80-acre Peter Britt Estate, Beebe Woods, Rich Gulch and several parcels of land managed by the Bureau of Land Management, the Jacksonville Woodlands Historic Natural Park now boasts over 300 acres of mixed woodland, oak groves, and riparian habitat.
