Enjoy an outstanding old-growth forest of towering old-growth incense cedars and Douglas-firs in the Rogue-Umpqua Divide Wilderness.
Distance: 5.0 miles
Elevation Gain: 300 feet
Leader: Dave and Dee Tvedt
Location: Rogue River National Forest
The Rogue-Umpqua Divide Wilderness just west of Crater Lake National Park (straddling the divide between these two major watersheds, as its name implies) has a lot of rugged terrain and a wide range of forest ages.
This hike avoids the rugged terrain but goes through some of the oldest and most spectacular forest found in the wilderness. Several 10’ diameter Douglas-Firs and a number of huge Incense Cedar are along its route. While about half of this approximately 5 mile hike is off-trail, the relatively gentle and open terrain make the hike only moderately difficult.
Due to the remote location of this hike, participants may choose to camp out the night before. Though this will not be considered an official Oregon Wild campout, suggested carpooling meet-ups and camping locations will be provided as the hike date nears.
