We did this hike 11/12/18 If you are coming from the south, (Cottage Grove side) Rd. 1751 is closed due to a landslide about 2 miles before the trailhead, you can park at the road closure and hike the road up to the trailhead. This turns the hike into an almost 7 1/2 miler. If you want to stay with just hiking the Mt. June trail itself, I would come in from the north side.

I have gone here a ton and there is always something new to explore. Hundreds of roads and mines to look around. If you want to really see some cool stuff, contact the miners museum in Cottage Grove to get a tour.

This is a beautiful hike. The back (north) end provides absolutely incredible views. But if you’re like me and haven’t hiked on BLM land (and let’s say you’re not a super experienced hiker), be aware that the east third of this loop is pretty vague as far as where the trail is. Markings are almost nonexistent and the trail will occasionally disappear. Bring a dog and/or GPS. Recommend!

This trail is gorgeous and 4.5 miles RT

The trail itself is beautiful, short and steep enough to be considered a workout. The view at the top is beautiful, even on a partly cloudy day. It is pretty hard to get to the trailhead, convoluted in the end and a total lack of markers. If you don’t use your trip odometer in the truck or car, I doubt you will find it. The road was rough and you really needed AWD for the last couple miles. Beautiful view!

Great hike! Like your in a scene out of the movies..... very jungle and hidden. We loved it. Did upper and lower. Did see one single person just our group of four.

A good trip, trail is steep but fairly short and the views are nice. It was also fun to rummage in the tailings of the old mine in the ghost town down below.

amazingly beautiful place

This is part of North bank , BLM habitat, and should be listed as such.
It’s only soggy in the 8-9 months of the year it’s raining in the roseburg area. In the summer it’s pretty hard packed and dry. Stay on trail to avoid poison oak!

This hike kicked my butt in the hot weather. Was worth it though! The drive is a little rough.

There is a lot more trail than 7.1 miles at North Bank, but most of it is seriously uphill or downhill. You can find a couple of “flat” miles at the west entrance, if you take the single track trail leading west from the parking lot, which soon joins a gravel road. The views from the top are definitely worth the work, and there are many ways to get there.
The east entrance has a more gradual climb to the top, (unless you take the trail under the power lines). But, it is closed mid-week, so you will have to park outside the gate and walk in.
There are cattle running about, and occasional horseback riders, so be aware. Also, prepare to wipe yourself down in case you contact poison oak. All trails have poison oak just off of them. In winter, the single track can be quite muddy, but in summer, even the “cat roads” are nice.. some gravel and packed dirt.

We enjoyed exploring the North Bank Ranch area. Lots of great trails and very few people. However, the title of this trial (Dunning Ranch Trail) was not seen on sign posts or on the BLM map located at the trailhead. We were pretty confused but still enjoyed the variety of hikes — the most visible one is steep and a good hike up. There is also a trailhead to the north of the parking lot (look for opening in the parking lot fence) that is more flat and leads to a variety of other trails.

Not much water in early Sept but a pretty hike on a gorgeous day. Gonna have to do it again after we get some rain and the falls are running. Ran into 5 or 6 other groups hiking today.

One of our favorite hikes close to home. The best time to hit this trail is in the spring when the water falls are flowing. It’s easy to get lost getting to this trail, so we’ve followed the directions in William Sullivan’s Oregon Coast Hiking book and didn’t have any problems. Water levels were pretty low last week but still a fun hike and no bugs.

beautiful trail through old growth forest with an amazing view at the summit.

I didn’t actually do this complete shorter trail, but the views at the summit are amazing! One of the best hike views I’ve seen. There is a longer trail you can do but I do not recommend it unless you’re with someone who has done it before. It is not marked at all until one point and it is extremely easy to miss that sign! We missed it and ended up hiking 5+ extra miles that day. I’d stick to this shorter one and it is absolutely worth the incline!

This place is GORGEOUS! We will definitely be going back. We were warned about the bad roads Google maps wants to take us, so here are the directions we found that were much better. From Eugene, drive 33 miles west on Hwy 126. Between milepost 26 and 27 turn at the Whittaker Creek Rec area sign. After 1.6 miles turn right and cross a bridge. Drive 1.5 miles and fork left onto Dunn Ridge Road and continue 7 miles to a T-shaped junction which marks the end of pavement. Turn left onto Knowles Creek Rd for 2.7 miles and then turn right onto paved Road 23 for another 1.6 miles. Finally turn right onto paved Rd 919 for 2.8 miles to the trail head parking area on your right.

Quite a drive! wasn't awesome in a Toyota Corolla. Definitely follow the Forest Service directions to actually find it. Beautiful! I've been there twice.

the mapping for this trail is severely incorrect and my daughter and I ended up on a BLM logging trail, and very disappointing. if you attempt to locate, please stop before you hit the BLM roads.

What a gem! Coming down the trail was a bit tricky and slippery due to loose dirt/rock, but overall a great time. One of the foot bridges are broken, but easily passable. We took a left at the at the path intersection and found the lower falls.

Great hike, very pretty and beautiful views! We did stumble upon a RATTLESNAKE in the middle of the path on our way back to our cars though!!! I was grateful in this moment that I hadn’t brought my dog, who would’ve surely been curious and possibly bitten. It was nearly 9pm and just up from the parking lot. I’ve lived in Oregon and this valley for most of my life and this was my very first run in. So just be aware that they’re out there lol! Aside from the adrenaline rush to cap off our hike, it was a great evening, beautiful sunset and just what we were looking for.

Stopped here with my pup for a quick hike on my way from Seattle down to Medford. We loved it! Great trail and beautiful views. I’d say this is more of a moderate hike because of the steady incline — so a bit more rigorous than a walk in the woods but not too difficult. Perfect pit stop!

One of my favorites

Great view!! 15 mile drive up windy road. Short and steep hike.

pretty easy until it starts to go straight down. kind of a goat trail at that point. moderate danger level. Very beautiful. great pics!

Amazing hike just went end of june great hike made it up in an impala, but would suggest a 4x4 due to pit holes!

5 stars for the view at the top! I didn’t actually hike all of the 2.8 miles track as we opted for the longer 7+ miles hike. I don’t recommend the longer one unless you’re with somebody who’s done it before. The trailhead is not marked and there was a sign along the way that was almost impossible to see on your way up and we ended up hiking 5+ miles in the wrong direction. But the actual Mount June summit is absolutely gorgeous!

Love the variety of scenery here. There was still snow on the ground in areas, but trails still easily accessible. the uncollapsed mine was flooded at this time of year.
