About the expedition.
The Rogue River is beautiful, featuring mile after mile of extraordinary coastal redwood scenery towering over a gin-clear green-hued river full of fun, straight-forward, manageable drops and chutes to navigate. The scenery isn’t the only unique feature - there’s Mule Creek Canyon, where the entire river channels into a narrow, walled-in gorge and rushes through a mile-long stretch of lively whitewater. There are short side-hikes to idyllic swimming holes and historic cabins that housed famous early Rogue River settlers, and so much wildlife that you may get tired of watching osprey dive for fish. The campsites are incredible, and the water is that perfect temperature that’s cold enough to cool you off but not cold enough to make you think twice about jumping in - especially at one of the many cliff-jumping locations in the canyon. Yes, the Rogue truly is paradise.
Wild & Scenic Rogue Itinerary.
Tuesday, September 10. Fly to Medford, Oregon. Ground transportation to the classic Morrison's Lodge at Alameda Bar on the banks of the Rogue. We'll dine at the resort on the deck overlooking the Rogue before heading off to a great nights sleep in comfortable beds before we start our adventure.
Wednesday, September 11. Launch in the morning onto the coveted Wild & Scenic stretch of the Rogue River. Explore the canyon and it’s side hikes/tributaries for 5 days. We’ll camp on the river banks for the first 3 nights, then spend our 4th and final night (Saturday, Sept 14) in the rustic elegance of Paradise Lodge - a luxury lodge that was grandfathered in when the Rogue was granted federal wild & scenic designation 50 years ago.
Sunday, September 15. After floating to our river take-out, we’ll drive just a short distance to the Pacific coast and stay at the Tu Tu Tun Lodge, another classic experience of Pacific hospitality. Then we'll enjoy fine dining together overlooking and listening to waves crash in the Pacific Ocean.
Monday, September 16. Today, we’ll enjoy fishing with professional guides for the salmon and steelhead that are running up the Rogue from the coast before returning for one more night of lodging on the coast. Those who are not interested in fishing can enjoy a hike in nearby state parks that house some of the largest redwood forests in the country, or shopping in the small coastal towns along the Oregon / California border.
Tuesday, September 17. Return flight to Denver.
During this expedition, through candid conversations and focused facilitation, we'll be amplifying the experience of the river to extend your horizon for what appears possible.
