Hiking the Pacific Crest Trail – Welcome Pacific Crest Trail Hikers!
Are you ready for 2017? We are 🙂
Callahan’s Lodge is delighted to be on your path whether you are a thru hiker or just on a section jaunt!
Enjoy dining hospitality: a tall cool lemonade sipped on the dining deck, a selection of one of a dozen beers on tap, a generous carb meal of Callahan’s classic spaghetti or a Porterhouse steak cooked to your liking. Those who also long for a hot shower, laundry facility and a soft spot to stay the night have found the right place.
Going North, approximately five miles after crossing the Mt. Ashland Ski Road, the PCT will cross 3 dirt roads spaced fairly close together. Above the 3rd road, there is a small rectangular, wooden, directional Callahan’s sign posted high on a tree. Follow that road straight down the mountain approximately 400′. Cross a dirt road straight down to the railroad yard and across the RR tracks in a northeasterly direction. You will see another steep short dirt road leading to the intersection of Interstate 5 and Exit 6. Cross under the freeway. Callahan’s occupies the northeast quadrant of that intersection.

SERVICES JUST FOR YOU!
We accept re-supply packages for a mere $5. On the box, just write:
“Hiker” and “Your Name”
c/o Callahan’s Lodge
7100 Old Highway 99 South
Ashland, OR 97520
Please jot down your ETA (approximate) on the front of the box. When you arrive, collect your package at the lodge front desk, which is open every day between 7 a.m. and about 10:30 p.m.
If “something comes up” and you are unable to pick up your package, we promise to get it back to the post office. We suggest you use a priority flat rate box provided by the USPS. They’ll “return to sender,” unopened, at no additional cost to you or us.
Those who long for a room to soak in a Jacuzzi tub, sit in front of a wood burning fireplace and sleep in a comfy pillowtop bed, need go no farther. $119 Sunday-Thursday and $139 Friday and Saturday. Excludes holidays and holiday weekends. See our regular lodging rate page for room amenities. This deal is unmatched for value.
There is a shower and laundry facility just for you!
If you do not plan to book a room in the lodge (a thing you may regret), you can check in with the front desk at the lodge to get directions to the hiker shower and laundry room. Your amenities (a robe, towel, wash cloth, clean smelling spa quality shampoo, conditioner and body soap) are presented with your experience. Then, unroll your sleeping bag on Callahan’s huge grassy backyard. You’ll be lulled to sleep with the lovely sounds of the waterfall.
THE PACKAGE DEAL
You can do a load of laundry (no sleeping bags, please) take a hot shower, pitch your tent on any level spot you like, then have a seat on our dining deck or in the dining room. Order a salad, bottomless plate of spaghetti served with French sourdough bread. Enjoy live music till 9 pm, maybe later. You will sleep like a baby and later than usual, we hope. When you awaken (after 8 am, please) come to breakfast and dine on a dish of fresh fruit, 3 eggs, 3 slices of bacon, and all the pancakes you can eat.
All this is yours for just sixty well-spent bucks (excluding gratuity) – $65
