My tracks were from Tioga Trail Bridge (about in the middle of the Tioga Segment) west for 1.6 miles. Short bike ride on a hot day. Turns out this section is an old roadbed - wide & easy. It'd be great for families or total dirt newbies. Despite going west, you actually are climbing the whole ride - gently. We turned around where the roadbed ends and a steep downhill of switchbacks start.

Neither this source nor the FS/BLM maps tell that this section can be cut in half (more or less) by this trailbridge.

Very pretty, even with the fire that burnt through a section. There is a sign that says closed but pay no mind to it the trail and bridges are in great shape. I came here to mountain bike and there were white a few hills but still so much fun!

The Tioga segment can be broken into two point-to-point hikes. The Swiftwater to Susan Creek bridge (7.7 mi) is currently closed due to damage caused by the Cable Crossing fire in early August. The Susan Creek to Wright Creek portion (8 mi) is in great shape and is 98% shaded by cedar, madrone, big leaf maple, and old growth Doug fir. Enjoy the beautiful walking/bike only bridge at Susan Creek, installed in 2012, that offers access to the N. Umpqua trail over the river.

Unbelievably beautiful. The watery Eden of Oregon. Green, lush, naturalist's dream. I didn't get nearly far enough up the trail, but my mom lives in Glide, so I'm going to make a New Year's resolution to finish the segment. Still, if you're in Oregon - and might be interested in the Steelhead of the North Umpqua, you've got to hike back up here. The moss and ferns make me want to throw myself on the ground and roll around in it. Okay, that sounds weird, but you know what I mean.
