Over millions of years, lifting of the western part of Oregon formed the mountains of the Pacific Coast. As the land slowly rose, the river channel eroded deeper and deeper into the rock and soil creating an average canyon depth, from river level to mountaintop, of over 3000 feet. The Rogue River begins near Crater Lake and flows 215 miles through the mountains and valleys of southwest Oregon emptying into the Pacific Ocean at the towns of Gold Beach.
Included is information on river etiquette, wildlife, safety, campsites, areas of interest, and multiple maps that will help you navigate this unique river of the Northwest.
