The Rogue River passes through this narrow canyon and enters into volcanic lava tubes that go deeply below ground level. Most of the river water exits the canyon through these lava tubes, then reenters stream channel several hundred feet downstream.

Hiking is good for the body and soul! Take the time to stop and hike. The scenery is spectacular and truly a taste of Oregon. Lots of waterfalls and photo ops! The restrooms are disgusting. Avoid at all cost.

Between Prospect & Union Creek are many access points to the Rogue River but the most fascinating & unusual is Natural Bridge. It's a very short walk to the river & the bridge over it is beautiful. One can hear, smell & feel the river....More

This short hike takes you to where the river disappears into a lava tube for a short distance. Very prety

A great place to visit anytime of year as the volcanic tubes and the carving action of water are so well illustrated in close proximity to each other. Easy trails to these attractions can be negotiated by anyone. A real treat just off the highway...More

The upper Rogue River is my favorite place to hike. This 2.4 mile trail gives you a bit of both sides of the river and includes the fascinating natural bridge. This is where the river disappears underground, through a 250-ft lava tube, to reappear just...More

A nice short walk breaking up the drive to Crator Lake. The natural bridge is interesting but the lava tubes where the water enters and exits are a bit more interesting.

This is a short drive up near Union Creek from Medford. Worth every minute. Lovely walk around all the beauty of the area. Great side trip for both couples and families.

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
