I've owned this 50 acre property for 14 years. We are building on the years I have invested in working with the community to develop plans for camping and light recreational activities on this land that we love. Foxview directly abuts 1.8 million acres of Siskiyou National Forest, is mere minutes from the Pacific Crest Trail and endless wilderness, and all just 10 minutes up the hill from culturally vibrant Ashland, Oregon.
As of May 2023, we’re working to improve the existing roads at Foxview, implement the US Forest Service's wildland fire protection and regeneration plan, and create low-impact campsite areas.
What excites us about Foxview is its wilderness beauty that's delightfully complimented by easy access to the nourishing and culturally-rich amenities of Ashland. It's the best of both worlds. This region is a hotspot for people who love healthy lifestyles and the outdoors. Not surprisingly, Oregon is one of our nation's top camping destinations. Additionally, Oregon is the first state in the nation to support licensed psychedelic therapy programs. We are looking into the possibility of Foxview being designated as a Psilocybin Service Center for clinical FDA-approved therapies. It could work out that Foxview is able to support licensed therapists in this form of therapy, but that remains to be seen.
