Rogue River National Recreation Trail

Agness, OR 97406

This rolling, 47-mile national recreation trail journeys alongside the entire 40-mile stretch of the Rogue River's Wild and Scenic section, a captivating waterway. It travels a former mining trail and passes Zane Grey's Cabin and two National Historic Places: the Rogue River Ranch and Whisky Creek Cabin. The trail boasts exciting river views of narrow gorges, white water riffles, and yawning passages; crosses scenic creeks with beckoning swimming holes; and offers great wildlife viewing with deer, otter, osprey, blue-tailed skink, salmon, ring-tailed cat, mink, and bear (so exercise proper care with food). Along the north canyon wall, the trail alternately tours high above and right next door to the river, offering various impressions of the Rogue. It traverses steep forested flank, leafy woodland slopes, and river bench and bar. The trail is accommodating to backpackers. Shuttle services for rafters also serve hikers, allowing a one-way tour of the trail without a second vehicle. The river corridor holds several campsites, lodges and rest stops.
