Illinois River: Oak Flat to Oak Flat Professional Review and Guide

"The Illinois, a crystal-clear tributary of the Rogue River, is one of the premier whitewater runs on the West Coast. In 1984 it received protection under the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. Flowing out of the Siskiyou Mountains south of Cave Junction, the Illinois runs in a northwesterly direction through the north end of the Kalmiopsis Wilderness.

The canyons and mountains here are as steep and rugged as any in Oregon. The area is largely devoid of topsoil, but kalmiopsis, a plant in the heather family, grows here. Natural landslides and erosion are evident along the river. Look at the landscape and enjoy it, but treat it kindly. Character: forested; remote."
