This route explores the famous lower Rogue River canyon from the Oregon coast end, then heads over the mountains to the waterfall-lined South Fork Coquille River. Long, winding, and slow. Mostly two- and one-lane blacktop, with 12 miles of gravel. The trip from Gold Beach, on the coast, to Agness, 30 miles up the Rogue, is a fine, paved route. The mouth of the Illinois River, near Agness, is spectacular, but there’s not much to see in Agness itself. Lots of people take the jet boat to Agness from Gold Beach. It’s lots of fun and offers a unique perspective on the river, but in my opinion, is very commercial and intrusive.
