Easy walk over a bridge. Take as long as you want and enjoy the beauty of rushing water over downed trees and rocks. See lava pockets along the edges of the water. One of my favorite places in SO.Oregon along the same area of the Rogue Gorge. Paved areas

I have been to the Natural Bridge Loop several times and have taken my friends to see uniqueness of the water and surroundings. One wants to be able to do some hiking in this lovely area.

This natural bridge is well worth the drive. It will astound even the most avid of travelers. The trail is well marked with plenty of signs explaining how the natural bridge was made.

This is a must-stop on the way to or back from Crater Lake. The short paved trail takes you over the Rogue River with spectacular views at the rushing water coming through the lava tubes and the view down stream. There are several informational panels that explain the formation of the lava tubes which is pretty fascinating. This hike can... More

Visiting the Natural bridge near Union Creek, north of Medford about 60 miles. Big parking lot and a wonderful walkway along the river. There is a really good camp ground a few hundred yards in the pine trees. This is a great way to experience the Pacific Northwest.

Natural Bridge Loop, just below "The Gorge" is a beautiful, informative and easy trail wo hike and learn about geology and why the Rogue River travels under the rock where the Natural Bridge is. A great walk for family of all age ranges.

the Rogue River flows through a lava tube here - disappearing underground for a while and then emerging from the rocks again - very beautiful! this trail is actually much closer to Union Creek or Prospect than Medford (it's about 45 miles from Medford)

Beautiful day hike year round. Snowshoes in the winter. Paved and dirt with overlooks. Stay on the proper side of fence and hang onto children people have died up there.

The natural bridge is very interesting! I find the lava rocks interesting to begin with. This scene is right off the highway and an easy, short stop along the way wherever you're going. We usually plan to stop here and the river gorge as well as a few other places like mill creek falls or on our way back from... More

This is the Rogue River roaring thru several deep gorges in the upper Rogue Forest. There is a small café, general store and several cottages. It has signs explaining several of the features seen on the hike along the gorges.
