At a Glance

Join professional guides for an adventurous journey through one of America's most spectacular wild river canyons. The trail follows the north bank of the river as it rushes through Oregon's coastal wilderness towards the Pacific. Hike the length of the Rogue River National Recreation Trail — used by gold miners and Native Americans for more than 1,000 years — carrying only a daypack, while equipment and supplies are carried down river on rafts.
