Just a little over an hour south of Medford the Natural Bridge on the Rouge river can be seen from a few lookout points which is a short walk from the parking lot. The path to the Natural Bridge is paved and there are educational plaques along the way. The trails splintering off from the path follow the river upstream... More

If you've got kids, then this is an easy education addition to your trip. Regardless, it's a very short hike with a fantastic return. The river is spectacular and it's so cool to see how the river disspaears through the lava tubes and reemerges. Lots of good photo opportunities and well worth a 30 min detour from your Crater Lake... More

A great short hike to see the rogue river dive underground into a lava tube and emerge 200-300 feet away at the other end.

Here is a great way to see nature with an easy hike near the river. Beautiful fall foliage. Fresh air and natural wonders. Suitable for younger and older folks we wouldn't do well on a lengthy hike.

The areas between Prospect & Union Creek, are some of the most Beautiful areas in Oregon....this area on the way to Crater Lake National Park is the headwaters of the famous Rogue River and the wonders of nature unfolds before your very eyes.

This is a beautiful stop on the way to or from Crater Lake National Park that has no fees for usage. There are bathrooms and plenty of parking. The walk is easy with no elevation. The paved trail does not loop, so you must walk back to the parking area. The river is pristine, the walkway is asphalt and the... More

We stopped here on our way from Crater Lake to Grants Pass. There are restrooms in the parking lot and it's a short drive from the main road. A short trail leads to a raging section of the Rogue River, which shoots through some lava tubes and comes out the other end as a waterfall...a natural wonder

The whole Rogue River goes underground through a lave tunnel. The best time to visit is in the spring when the water is high. You can combine the visit with a hike to the Natural Bridge from Woodruff Bridge or from Union Creek. There also is an excellent hike from River Bridge to Takelma Gorge.
