Keep the Pace
Must be able to walk up to two miles a day. Be prepared for walking on uneven ground, unpaved trails or sandy beaches. There are steep stairs at some locations that will require you to be sure-footed. Elevations of 4,000-7,100 feet.

Best of all, you’ll…

  • At Crater Lake, marvel at a massive volcanic caldera holding the deepest lake.
  • Experience the thrills, excitement and breathtaking scenery of the Rogue River on an expert-led jet boat ride.
  • Touch trees rooted when Caesar ruled Rome in the world’s largest remaining stand of virgin redwoods.
