Such a beautiful hike! With the river always close there were so many awesome views. We hiked just over 10 miles the first days and it was constantly up and down with a lot of loose rock. We did an out and back because it was our first backpacking trip. The trail was well maintained and had great signage. Definitely recommend the Rogue River trail!

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.
