Spring is a great time to walk the Upper Rogue River Trail to witness the spring snow melt rush through the volcanic geology of the Upper Rogue River Gorge. On this spring hike series we will see evidence of the Rogue’s volcanic history, watch and listen for forest birds, and identify the spring flora of the river gorge
This 5-mile out and back hike consists of easy to moderate grades from Woodruff Bridge Picnic Area to the Takelma Gorge and back. Depending upon trail conditions after a long winter, there may be a few snow patches and downed trees over trail. Prepare for cool and possible wet hiking with potential for short off trail detours depending upon trail conditions. Bring food/water, binoculars if birding, and dress for changing weather.
