Everything you read about this ride that is wonderful is true. One warning. Just before you go across Scottsburg bridge, the road is very narrow especially on the east side. Time your going into the corner when there are no big trucks, motorhomes or big trailers sharing it with you. The new bridge should be finished by the end of 2021. Stop at Dean Creek Elk Durelk season is when you see the most elk. Wonder why, Lol.

Scenic drive along the pretty Umpqua River. Be sure to stop at the elk refuge to see herds of wild elk (from easy roadside viewing spots and/or pullouts with informative signs).

Rt 38 is a beautiful drive from the I-% to the coast. It follows the river thru awesome forests, hills and small towns. You even see an elk reserve outside of Reedsport

Beautiful drive between I5 and the coast. A short 3-4 miles east of Reedsport is an elk viewing area with restrooms and a pavilion. This area also attracts geese and some ducks. The river also has great fishing opportunities (salmon, sturgeon, steelhead, bass). Farther east, near Drain, there is a butterfly attraction site and winery sites. There are plenty of things do see and do along this route. Don't get in a hurry, just relax, enjoy and take advantage of all of the sights and activities along the way.
