We enjoyed a short walk along a beautiful, flowing river. The parking area for Natural Bridge is at the same turn for the campground -- turn west off OR-62 just south of Union Creek.

This is a "must" for a nice afternoon drive. It's beautiful and well worth the drive. Both times here were quiet, few visitors and peaceful.

This is the area where the Rogue River flows through a lava tube. There are a few informational signs that describe the scenery. Give yourself plenty of time to hike both sides of the river. Most of the hiking is relatively easy. Take the time...More

This is a popular choice for our church hikes. While in the area be sure to go up the road a little farther to the Rogue River Gorge just past the pie place, Becky’s.

The parking lot is pretty close to the highway. More like 0.25 mile rather than 3.5. This one is easy to do as a very quick stop.

This is what I would rate as an easy walk or stroll through the woods. It is all level with a very slight incline, if at all. It starts at a paved parking lot with bathroom facilities and there is an information kiosk... More

My family and I (DH, myself, DS11, and DD7) will be heading to Medford on Wednesday, May 25 and staying until Wednesday, June 1. We are a very active family from the Midwest visiting for the 1st time. What recommendations do you have for us? I'm looking for places, activities and restaurants that should not be missed! We will have a car so day trips are fine. I've done a little research and come up with a list, but I'm not sure it's possible to do all of it so I wanted to run it past...More

Day trips: Crater Lake....yes Oregon Caves...yes Natural Bridge Loop...yes (not sure you'd want to include it in your Crater Lake day trip...but it's possible) Redwoods....it would make for a very long day, but you could do it and at least get to see some redwoods Gold Beach...only reason to go there would be for the jetboat trips up into the Rogue River Wilderness and you couldn't fit that in with a day trip (via 119 to Crescent City and then north on 101).
