Lower Rogue River Trail offers a scenic trek through one of Oregon's majestic rain forests. Wildlife is abundant and possible animal sightings include, black bear, deer, and raccoons. The grade is gentle along most of the trail, with a few moderate slopes. The trail crosses a series of creeks, including a scenic waterfall at Auberry Creek. It also goes through Adams Prairie, the site of an old Curry County homestead and school. Vegetation along the trail is rich and varied. Old growth Douglas fir over 500 years old can be seen, as well as dozens of varieties of wildflowers. The intermittent creeks crossing the trail offer a refreshing break and interesting views. There is some poison oak, so hikers should be careful. Horses are permitted, but NOT recommended due to safety reasons; the trail has many narrow, rocky bluffs.
Directions: From Gold Beach, Follow Jerry's Flat Road (county road 595 turns into Forest Service Road 33) east to Agness. Turn west on old Agness road (county road 375) and drive past the Old Agness Post Office to the trailhead at the library/school yard.
Distance: 12.0 miles
