Description: The 40-mile Rogue River Trail is popular for its outstanding scenery and its proximity to the Wild and Scenic Rogue River. Hikers enjoy seeing wildlife, wildflowers, and the many historical sites along the river as well as enjoying the river itself. The Rogue River Ranch and Whisky Creek Cabin, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, are both on this trail, as is a homestead of Zane Grey`s. Abundant evidence of the gold rush lines the banks of the river; read the trail log for details.

The best time to hike the trail is in spring and early summer, when temperatures are moderate and the wildflowers are blooming. Camping is mostly at dispersed sites with a few developed campgrounds providing toilets. The Foster Bar and Marial trailheads both have campgrounds at or close to the trailhead, and a county campground is about 4 miles upriver from the Grave Creek trailhead. Use Leave No Trace procedures while camping and cooking along the river corridor. Fire pans are required within 400 feet of the river.

Location: Trailheads from east to west: Graves Creek boat ramp north of Galice; Tucker Flat Campground near Marial; Foster Bar in the Siskiyou National Forest (37 miles east of Gold Beach/US 101).   Latitude: 42.716695   Longitude: -123.884561
