Rogue River Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A two- to three-day, round-trip backpack in the Wild Rogue Wilderness. The trail parallels the Rogue River with frequent views of the river itself. Although there are times when the trail leads through the trees, away from the river, there are also times when the trail is several hundred feet above with a steep drop-off to the river below. Special attractions: Trail parallels famous Rogue River; great fishing, lovely streams; wildflowers; abundant wildlife, including bear, deer, osprey, herons, and bald eagles. It’s also a bonus for history buffs."
--Donna Lynn Ikenberry, Hiking Oregon (Ikenberry) (Falcon Guides).
"The Rogue River Trail is a 40-mile adventure that follows the river from Illahee to Grave Creek."
--Ellen Morris Bishop, Best Hikes with Dogs: Oregon (The Mountaineers Books).
Did this trail in late September, it was still warm enough to go for a swim. If you are in the area and want a great simple hike with spectacular view's this is it. Pictures in my profile. I plan on doing this hike several more times.
fabulous flowers, views for the four days. The trail between Paradise and Foster Bar is not well maintained but damage from 2005 fire near Blossom Bar is fixed and entire trail is hikable. Many camping spots but some are popular with the rafters especially below Mule Creek. Very few backpackers on trail. Paradise lodge is closed for remodeling until late May.
