We have visited this many times as we stop when we are on way either to or from Crater Lake when we have out of state guests. It is a pleasant walk to the river on a level asphalt trail that meanders through the woods. It is very safe and and an educational opportunity for kids to see how the... More

We come up here several times a year. It's a nice, short, easy hike. The scenery is beautiful and it's fun to see how the river changes at different times of the year. For a longer hike, you can continue the trail up to Rogue Gorge for more beautiful scenery. It's right of the highway and easy access, even when... More

Always one of my favorite places to stop and stretch my legs driving from Medford to Bend or taking friends to Crater Lake. A beautiful scenic stretch of the Rogue River before it becomes a big river. Nice campground too.

This is a lovely place to go for a short stroll. There are many beautiful views of the gorge and the river. The area is nice and cool in the summer because of the trees. Check out the Lava tubes. The forests are old and beautiful

You will be captivated by the swirling waters that tumble below and above you. Be sure and stop to visit , it definitely is... More

Awesome amazing view of a old lava tub that a river now goes threw. Takes a few hours to get there from Medford and plan on being there for a hour to see all of it. Take time to grab a burger at Becky's YUM YUM

I recommend stopping here for the scenery and taking pictures. A great place to see Oregon outdoors. This is a very rugged and beautiful area of Oregon. Observe the safety barriers and don't be stupid. This is a safe area but people have been hurt who were foolish. After stopping here stop at the nearby Beckies restaurant. Known for their... More

Reallly neat stop on route 62 headed to Crater Lake from Shady Cove. There is a short loop trail here on the Rogue River. The "Natural Bridge" is actually a lava tube. Almost passed it by. Glad we stopped.
