This is one of the best rafting trips in the lower 48 States. This is the official "Wild & Scenic" portion of the Rogue River between Grave Creek and Foster Bar. It has a bunch of Class II and III rapids along the length, a Class IV in Mule Creek Canyon and a Class V right off the bat just down from the put in called Rainee Falls. Some Boaters take 3-4 days to do this section but it is possible as an overnight at the Rogue River Ranch campsite. You'll see a lot of wildlife including black bears and have a ton of fun in the rapids.

Beautiful moderate hike on ledges above the Rogue River. The trail varies from well worn path to very rocky and a challenge for the ankles. Trail crosses several small streams coming down the slopes and it occasionally goes down to the river bank.

Plenty of poison oak to watch out for, other hikers mentioned seeing snakes, we did not.
