From the confluence of the North and South Umpqua Rivers west of Roseburg, the main Umpqua winds leisurely through the Coast Range to the Pacific Ocean near Reedsport. Numerous small farms and houses dot the river’s banks, but many stretches show little development and the development one does see is fairly unobtrusive. Roads follow most of the river, but significant traffic is noticeable only on stretches below Elkton and along one short stretch near Kellogg. The predominant scenery is the forested hills of the Coast Range, enjoyable even with the considerable logging that has taken place. Character: forested; agricultural; roaded.
