Rogue River Hiking


Rogue River Lodge to Lodge Hiking Vacation

Rogue River Oregon Wilderness Hiking Trail is Unique
Hikers Can Stay in a Wilderness Lodge at Night

You can hike into Clay Hill Lodge in three hours. No need to take anything but a day pack, lunch, camera and water. It's just that easy. Hiking is generally at its peak in May and June before the summer temperatures regularly climb into the 90s. Springtime in the canyon brings temperatures generally in the 70s plus. The trail has moderate grades and well-constructed bridges over numerous creeks. The Rogue River Trail is approximately 36 miles long and can be hiked starting at either end or the middle. One, two or up to five day lodge-to-lodge hikes, raft supported hikes, guides and vehicle shuttles can be arranged with local outfitters.

Deer on the trail

Water fall along the trailClay Hill Lodge is located approximately six trail miles from the west end of the Rogue River Trail near Foster Bar. It begins at Big Bend Meadow where Native Americans still gather annually for a jamboree. As you enter the meadow, keep an eye out for the herd of Roosevelt Elk which inhabits the area. Trillium, Wild Iris, Blue Bells and a myriad of other wild flowers fill the eyes with color and the nose with delicate fragrances. Old growth Douglas fir, groves of myrtle wood and oak savannah are interspersed along the trail. Waterfalls, including Flora Dell Falls, named after one of the homesteaders of Clay Hill Lodge, cascade down with breathtaking beauty.

Clay Hill Lodge with spacious viewing decks, hot showers and baths, and a friendly staff await you!

Local outfitters can help you organize your lodge to lodge hiking trip, shuttles and transportation.

"The beauty of the surroundings and terrain permeates to the home and atmosphere you put so much effort into creating - thank you for an experience I'll treasure for a lifetime!!!"
