Six Rivers National Forest

Six Rivers National Forest stretches south from the Oregon/California border in a long, narrow band for 140 miles. The park encompasses nearly one million acres. Portions of the forest lie in four counties, but almost half of the forest is in Del Norte County. The things you will see when you visit Six Rivers are truly aweinspiring. There are opportunities for hiking or horseback riding along trails through the rugged mountains, expansive stands of redwoods, other conifers and grasslands. The elevation ranges from sea level to 7,000 feet along the eastern mountain crests. There is great fishing for trout, steelhead and salmon along the 1,500 miles of rivers and in the Smith, Klamath, Trinity, Mad, Van Duzen and Eel rivers. White-water rafting and kayaking on these rivers is legendary. The wildlife lover will take pleasure in spotting a bald eagle or peregrine falcon. The park is also home to McDonald’s rock cress and many other rare animals and plants. The area is also known as a place to seek the elusive Bigfoot. Camping is available. Highways 199, 96, 36 and 299 all run through the Six Rivers National Forest, and Hwy 101 runs parallel to it.

RV Camping

RV travel is a great way to roll through scenic Northern California and Oregon. There’s no need to make reservations at hotels, just pull into a campsite at a fraction of the cost, and slip into the back when it’s time for bed. Forget about the bother of hauling your gear into and out of a hotel; it all stays in your self-enclosed home on wheels. Furthermore, a fully equipped kitchen allows you to bring even more of the comforts of home on the road — and to save cash eating in instead of out. Don’t forget the social benefits of RVing as you’re bound to meet a lot of like-minded folks when you set up camp. There are plenty of great RV campgrounds to choose Emigrant Lake, 101Things.com from throughout the area. RV traveling also offers motorists freedom. If you pull into an area that doesn’t appeal to you, there’s no need to stay. If you find a place you absolutely love, then put her in park and enjoy. When the open road is calling, RV travel may be just what you need.

Wild River Brewing

photo by Steve Hammons, 101Things.com

For the beer drinker who likes to try new things, a visit to one of Southern Oregon’s many great microbreweries is definitely in order. The region is home to many handcrafted-beer facilities, so finding one nearby should not be a problem. Microbrewed beers are crafted in small batches and due to the inclusion of specialty malt and hop ingredients tend to vary in aroma and flavor from commercially brewed beer. These beers might contain natural ingredients as varied as coriander and lavender, and most likely do not contain artificial flavorings, fillers, or thickeners. Since most are brewed on site they are also very fresh. Some breweries offer tours and most establishments serve food to go along with the many award-winning beers of the region. Perhaps the best known microbrewery in the area is Wild River Brewing and Pizza Company, which got its start in Cave Junction in 1975, (541) 592-3556. Since then, the family-owned business has expanded, with locations in Brookings-Harbor (541) 469-7454; Medford (541) 773-7487; and Grants Pass which has two locations (541) 471-7487 or (541) 474-4456. Sit back with a cold one at any of these five establishments.

Ocean World Aquarium

If you are looking for an exciting family adventure take a tour of Ocean World in Crescent City. This is one of the best privately-owned small aquariums in the United States. Go on a fully-guided 45-minute tour, that begins with a visit to the tide pool where kids and adults can touch the sea life. There are local flora, sea stars, anemones, sea slugs and more. See if you can spot Simon the Rockfish in his cave. In the main aquarium there are three environments, one of which features a rocky bottom and has 20 different species of rockfish, wolf eels and giant sea stars. The sandy bottom environment has a school of sharks and in the open ocean environment you can watch bat rays “fly” along with 40-pound striped bass. Don’t forget to visit the Shark Gallery, where visitors can pet live sharks. There is a show with Red and Erin, the sea lions, and Marina, a harbor seal, who perform tricks. A question-and-answer period with the trainers takes place afterward. Going to Ocean World is a memorable experience for people of all ages.

St. George Reef Lighthouse Helicopter Tours

Pelican State Beach

Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park

By taking a short helicopter ride, you can discover the only offshore lighthouse open to the public. It is situated on a tiny, wave-swept rock, six miles off the coast. In July 1865, a coastal steamer named Brother Jonathan wrecked on the St. George Reef, causing the deaths of more than 150 people. The construction of what is considered the most expensive American lighthouse on the reef began in 1882. Since then, it has done a great deal to help sailors make their way into the harbor at Crescent City. Today, restorations are taking place to bring this piece of history back to its original beauty. The St. George Lighthouse Preservation Society offers helicopter flights and tours that leave from the local airport. Within six minutes, you are landing atop a 42-foot wide portion of caisson roof near the bottom of the tower. During a one-hour tour of the structure you will learn about the history of the lighthouse, the town and lighthouses in general. Tours from November through April are infrequent and can be changed at the last moment due to unstable flying conditions. Be sure to check the flight schedule when you are in the area. If you cannot make a flight and tour, you might consider stopping by the Del Norte County Museum, on the corner of 5th and H Streets, which is also home to a large collection of artifacts from the lighthouse, (707) 464-3922. MORE INFO: (707) 464-8299, StGeorgeReefLighthouse.us

For absolutely gorgeous ocean views on an undeveloped beach just south of the Oregon border, go to Pelican State Beach, the northernmost State Beach in California. This is a quiet, undeveloped and secluded beach, comprising about five acres. It is a great place for a leisurely walk or surf fishing. The beach was named for the pelicans you will see diving into the ocean and searching for their next meal. The summers are mild and fog is common, creating a mysterious landscape. Bring a blanket and relax with a loved one while watching the sunset over the sparkling ocean. A short, 15-minute walk north on the beach will take you into Oregon, where you will find the Winchuck River. Stroll along the south bank all the way back to Hwy 101 or cross over the river when the water is low enough in the summer. If you want to get to the north side but do not want to ford the Winchuck, you can park in an unpaved parking lot on the north bank. Pelican State Beach is located 21 miles north of Crescent City off Highway 101 at Gilbert Way just before reaching Oregon. MORE INFO: (707) 465-2145, parks.ca.gov/?page_id=412

In 1826, an explorer named Jedediah Strong Smith went on a two-year trapping and exploring expedition, taking him from the Great Salt Lake in Utah, through the Mojave Desert, over the San Bernardino Mountains and into California. This brave man was the first European to explore the interior of Northern California. Today, an amazing State Park has been named after him just outside of Crescent City. Established in 1929, the park protects many acres of old-growth coastal redwoods along with the Smith River, the last major freeflowing river in California. Most of the park is watershed for this pristine river and Mill Creek, another major tributary. There are 20 miles of hiking and nature trails that are excellent for exploring along with many places to access the river for kayaking, swimming or fishing. King salmon and steelhead trout fishing are excellent in the fall and winter. Driving along the gravel Howland Hill Road or strolling in Stout Grove are popular activities. If you are a fan of wildlife watching, you will love spotting deer, fox, beaver, river otter and chipmunks, along with rare and uncommon birds like the bald eagle, spotted owl, pleated woodpecker and marbled murrelet. There are also splendid campgrounds available for those who would like to spend the night. Make sure you stop in at the Visitor Boy Scout Trail, Jedediah Smith Redwoods SP Center; it has many exhibits which photo by Bob Berkowitz, ExploreDelNorte.com will help enhance your experience of the park. The park and its campgrounds are open all year long. The Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park is located nine miles east of Crescent City on Hwy 199.

Crescent City’s Redwood Canopy Tour is 60 feet up in a second growth redwood forest. Start your tour by being guided through an interpretive redwood forest and then proceed to ground school, learning terms and techniques needed to safely maneuver through the canopy. After the training is completed the next challenge will be to climb 60 feet up into the redwoods and ride a series of 4 ziplines through the canopy. From there you will be lowered in a rappel-like fashion back down to the ground. This exciting tour is a part of Sunset High School’s Experiential Education program in association with North Coast Adventure Centers. The Centers’ trained student-guides run tours with participants over 12 years old and 5 feet tall. Climbing, zipping, and rappelling through the trees will help to appreciate their power and beauty. Tours run between 2 to 3 hours long, and are offered on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May through October. If you want a tour on other days of the week you can go down the coast to Arcata and experience their tour. North Coast Adventure Centers also offers a Big Rappel and Rock Climbing trip on Humboldt’s Redwood Coast. Visit the North Coast Adventure Centers website for all their activities and locations.

hirteen miles south of the Oregon border, lies the quaint community of Smith River. Adjacent to Rowdy Creek near where the Smith River meets the Pacific Ocean, the area is known for its rich farmland and temperate climate, a combination which has helped to make it the “Easter Lily Capital of the World.” There are also ten State and National Parks within 20 miles of Smith River, which make it a great place to explore and plan an adventure.

THE COAST ~ Brookings-Harbor

Brookings-Harbor

B

rookings-Harbor is six miles north of the California border on Hwy 101 and the southernmost community in Curry County, Oregon. This is an area of abundant natural attractions with miles of coastline, wild scenic rivers, State and City parks, and an attractive port. The cities of Brookings and Harbor are nestled on either side of the Chetco River where it meets the sea. Brookings is an incorporated city while Harbor is not. Brookings is in an area often referred to as the "Banana Belt" of the Pacific Northwest, thanks to its sunny and temperate year-round climate. This makes Brookings a welcome reprieve for travelers in a region otherwise known for rain and fog. Highway 101 runs through Brookings’ commercial core which can fill virtually any need a traveler may have. Brookings-Harbor is also famous for growing nearly 90% of America's Easter lilies, and an early summer drive between Brookings-Harbor and Crescent City takes you through breathtaking views of fields of blooming lilies.

Brookings Recreational Beaches

Brookings is home to several beautiful beaches. Take an afternoon to hike, picnic or walk the adjacent trails. Some of these beaches boast a treasure trove of shells and stones, while others provide a glimpse into marine life through tide pools. Camping accommodations can also be found.

Harris Beach, photo by Steve Hammons

Harris Beach State Recreation Area on the north side of Brookings, has an exceptional rocky coastline dotted by monolithic sea stacks and bordered by gorgeous spruce, fir and pine trees. Sea lions, sea birds and seals are a common sight along the beaches, and in winter and spring you may see migrating gray whales. Bird Island, just off shore, is the largest island off the Oregon Coast and is a National Wildlife Sanctuary and breeding site for rare birds, including the tufted puffin. The park offers RV hookups, showers, restrooms, tent sites, WiFi access, playgrounds, and cabins, yurts and teepees. Interpretive events, tours and educational programs are all offered. Lone Ranch Beach is located 4.5 miles north of Brookings with access from the Lone Ranch Beach State Wayside. There is easy handicapped access to this spectacular outdoor playground along a paved walking trail.101 The Things site features restrooms, picnic tables To Do and fire rings.

Brandy Peak Distillery

One of the most unique and beautiful places in Oregon is Azalea City Park in Brookings, where you can walk among astonishing native azaleas. There are many trails through this 33-acre park that will take you past five varieties of endangered native azaleas, annuals, shrubs and bulbs. The area boasts year-round color along with forests of enormous trees. The paths are originally part of a pack trail that was used by miners in the 1850s. This was an important segment of the coastal wagon route leading from California to the Umpqua and Willamette Valleys in Oregon. The azaleas in the park were officially recognized in the 1930s. The park was dedicated in 1939, and the first Azalea Festival was held there. For the entertainment of locals and tourists alike, the American Music Festival, a free summer concert series, is held in the park every year. In the northwest corner of the park, you will find Kidtown, a great place for children to play. It is a wooden structure with turrets, slides, tunnels and swings. There is also a gazebo perfect for picnicking or reading a book. MORE INFO: Brookings Chamber of Commerce, (800) 535-9469, BrookingsOR.com

Rain Forest Moonshine. There is something cooking up in the forested hills just north of Brookings. Some might call it sophisticated moonshine, but we're talking about carefully crafted brandies made from pears and grapes. Produced in unique wood-fired pot stills, the spirits range from rustic grappas to elegantly aged brandies. And let's not forget the luscious blackberry liqueur. A "from scratch" distillery, the Nowlin family crafts these award winning brandies using techniques developed by founder R.L. Nowlin, over his 65 year tenure in the business. Using neither flavorings nor other additives (except for the sugar to the Blackberry Liqueur) these Brandy Peak products are just pure fruit. Now approaching its 18th year of operation, it is run by son David and his wife Georgia. Visitors are welcome to come and BrandyPeak.com see the art of brandy making. Tours are available along with tastings and sales. The friendly staff and Max the lab await your visit. WHERE: just north of Brookings, four miles up Carpenterville Rd. off Hwy 101 MORE INFO: (541) 469-0194, BrandyPeak.com

THE COAST ~ Brookings-Harbor

The Pelican Bay Lighthouse, one of only two private lighthouses in Oregon, towers 141 ft. over Brookings Harbor and the Pacific Ocean. The lighthouse was built by JoAnn and the late Bill Cady in 1990. The son of a lighthouse keeper, Bill was raised along the California coast at lighthouse stations in Point Loma, Cape Mendocino and Trinidad. Originally, the Cadys’ non-navigational lighthouse was situated at their residence in the town of Harbor. However, because of view obstructions, in 1997 the Cadys moved the lighthouse to its current home above Brookings Harbor. After settling in at the new location, the couple decided it was time to install a working light. The U.S. Coast Guard commissioned the lighthouse in 1999. It was first lit on July 4 of that year. The lamp is a fixed acrylic Fresnel lens that can be seen from 11 miles away; it automatically switches on at dusk and off at dawn. Because the Cape Cod-style lighthouse is part of JoAnn Cady’s private residence, it is not open to the public. However, catching a glimpse of the lighthouse is easy—simply visit Brookings Harbor. You photo by Jo Mochulski can’t miss it.

Port of Brookings Harbor

A great place to spend an afternoon walking around and doing a little bit of everything is the Port of Brookings Harbor. This is the busiest recreational port on the Oregon Coast, attracting more than 95,000 people each year. The avid angler will be in fisherman’s paradise, as this is one of the most active Chinook salmon habitats in the area. At this picturesque full-service marina you can get a license, bait, ice, gear and even reserve a sports-fishing charter. Clam digging is another popular activity at the port. There is great shopping in the candy stores, gift shops, clothing and jewelry stores. If you want a snack or meal, there are several coffee shops, restaurants and places for elegant dining. Lodging can be found overlooking the water. In August, the Festival of the Arts, a juried show featuring over 100 fine arts and crafts vendors, is held on the Boardwalk. WHERE: off Hwy 101 at the Benham Ln. traffic light, six miles north of the border in Brookings. This road leads onto Lower Harbor Rd. and to the southern end of the port area.

terrain. The river narrows at points and crosses rock outcrops that have left gigantic boulders in the water’s path. The river eventually empties into the Pacific Ocean between Brookings and Harbor, just five miles north of the California border, where it is gentler and the river bottom widens with the banks coated by dense forest. The upper 45 miles of the river form its headwaters to the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest boundary and has been designated as a part of the national Wild and Scenic River program. In the summer, visitors love to go fishing, four-wheel driving, hiking, swimming, picnicking, boating, camping and wildlife-viewing. In the winter, people partake in excellent salmon and steelhead fishing, and the brave go white-water kayaking. The Chetco River Gorge, with its abrupt sides and unique rock formations just below Steel Bridge is worth a visit. Below this, the river continues to broaden with sandbars and raised river terraces. WHERE: The Chetco River winds through the southern part of Curry County and can be found by going to the Kalmiopsis Wilderness in Siskiyou National Forest or driving along North Bank Chetco River Rd. off Hwy 101 near Brookings.

Wild Rogue Wilderness

There is nothing more striking in Southern Oregon than the natural, scenic beauty that is seemingly everywhere. The Wild Rogue Wilderness is no exception. It was established to provide watershed protection to the portion of the Rogue River that was federally designated as “wild” in 1978. This area lives up to its “wild” name. Nearly vertical cliffs and razor-sharp ridges provide a breathtaking backdrop for the bubbling mountain creeks that run and rush toward the rivers. The region originally was settled by hunters and gold prospectors, who found the land enticing for its visual magnificence and the prospect it held for wealth. Little gold was ever found in the area, but as you wander through, you are likely to run across the 150-year-old remnants of the search. Stamp mills, flumes and trestles still speckle this otherwise undeveloped tract of land. If you are a fisherman, you may find paradise in one of the most tremendous steelhead and salmon fisheries in the Pacific Northwest. If you prefer the more adventurous route, test the exquisite white water the Rogue River has to offer. Hikers love the National Recreation Trail that provides the only access year-round to the portion of the Rogue from Graves Creek to Illahe. Camping is also very popular in the Wild Rogue Wilderness.

t the crossroads of Hwy 101 and County Road 595, (the lower Rogue River highway), in Gold Beach, just go east instead of north. County Road 595, better known as Jerry’s Flats Rd. is a “road less traveled.” Follow the Rogue River river up into the hills about 20 miles until County Rd. 595 becomes Agness Rd. There is a photo opportunity around every turn and the unspoiled beauty is breathtaking. Giant conifers line one side of the road and the mighty Rogue River is on the other. Keep following the Rogue about 15 miles to the small town of Agness where the river runs right through the center of town. Agness is located where the Rogue National Wild and Scenic River area and the Illinois Wild and Scenic River area connect. The town has a “city” limits sign proclaiming “Pop: Small.” For a town it’s size it has so much to give. Spend some time with the locals and find out for yourself.

Lodge & Cabins

Agness Lodging

The only way to truly experience the backcountry east of Gold Beach is to spend some time with the locals: eat, sleep, shop, see the sights and get your feet wet. Follow the Rogue River from the rugged Pacific Coast along what is called Jerry’s Flat Rd. inland to the little town called Agness and take a step back in time. Your 35-mile sojourn from the coast will take you through a slow corridor lined with giant conifers on one side and the rushing river on the other. What you will find when you reach the village of Agness is a century-old riverside experience. The Historic Lucas Pioneer Ranch and Fishing Lodge has been operating continually since 1903. The tradition of good old-fashioned hospitality continues at the lodge, for seven generations now. Lucas Lodge is the place to “get away” and relax in a peaceful, tranquil setting. The ranch features cabins and overnight accommodations in the Lodge itself, plus wonderful home-cooked food reminiscent of the days gone by. MORE INFO: (541) 247-7443, LucasLodgeOregon.com Singing Springs Resort offers Rogue River visitors well-known hospitality, fine food, casual overnight accommodations and an escape from the hustle of everyday life. They feature experienced driftboat operators and fishing guides on the Rogue. MORE INFO: (877) 330-3777, SingingSpringsResort.com Cougar Lane Lodge is a favorite stop after the drive from Hwy 101 to Agness. The Cougar Lane Lodge has it all: a full restaurant and bar, a country grocery store complete with gas and fishing supplies and a comfortable motel.

Agness Hiking and BikingTrails

Some of the most majestic sights of coastal Oregon are the enormous old Douglas firs. Check out the Schrader Old Growth Trail, home to some of the oldest trees in the area. You are sure to love this easy hike. Bring your mountain bike and ride the trails. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for the wildlife that inhabits the forest around these 300-year-old trees. This interpretive trail is a one-mile loop. Pick up a brochure at the trailhead and learn about the different plants and animals that you might see along the way. After you have looped around the Shrader Old Growth Trail, you can cross the Lobster Creek Bridge and head to the Myrtle Tree Trail. Since this trail is much shorter, about a quarter mile, you might want to try it out first. The largest Myrtle tree in the world can be found on this trail. This stately myrtle stands at nearly 90 feet tall and 42 feet around. These two trails offer excellent, short hikes for those looking to enjoy the outdoors. The Myrtle Tree and Shrader Old Growth Trails are located on either side of the Lobster Creek Bridge. To get to the bridge, follow the signs at Jerry’s Flat Rd.

Bear Basin Butte Lookout

photo by Steve Hammons

In the heart of the Smith River National Recreation Area awaits an opportunity to do something that not many have the chance to do. If you really want to get away from it all and bask in the beauty of nature, spend the night in a fire lookout at Bear Basin Butte Lookout. Perched atop a narrow ridge at 5,300 feet, the lookout features breathtaking 360-degree views of the Siskiyou Mountains to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. If you rent the lookout, a 1930s style cabin comes with it, providing sleeping accommodations for up to 12 people. The lookout and cabin are available for one to four-night stays between July 1 and September 30. Reservations are taken after January 1 at (877) 444-6777.www.recreation.gov While traveling along Hwy 199, make sure to enjoy the Smith River National Recreation Area. Go kayaking, white-water rafting, and swimming in the Smith River and other rivers in the area. Fishing for trout, steelhead, and salmon on the rivers is considered World Class due to the trophy-sized catches and the challenge of landing a fish. There are also numerous hiking trails through the Siskiyou Wilderness, along Myrtle Creek and on the Darlingtonia interpretive trails, where you will be able to spot rare and endangered plants and wildflowers. You can find the recreation area through much of Del Norte County, and Hwy 199 runs right through it. MORE INFO: (707) 457-3131, FS.Fed.US/r5/SixRivers/Recreation/Smith-River

On the surface the Oregon Caves National Monument may appear to be the same as every outdoor area in Southern Oregon. It’s not just the delightful trails meandering throughout beautiful forests that are amazing about this area. Below the earth’s surface lies a vast system of caverns and caves, and the park offers many family-focused opportunities. These beautiful marble passages and chambers mystify visitors. Take a guided tour of the caves to learn about this diverse geological area from experienced ranger-naturalists. Kids can participate in the Junior Ranger program in the summer months and learn to share the responsibilities of preserving and protecting the Monument. Take a hike on one of the scenic trails, or if visiting in the winter, snowshoe through the beautiful Rogue-Siskiyou National Forest. You can also visit a very special National Historic Landmark, the Oregon Caves Chateau, which provides lodging, dining and a gift shop speOregonCavesChateau.com cializing in local hand-crafted items. The Oregon Caves National Monument is open year-round for outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and snowshoeing. Tours of the caves are operated on a seasonal basis from late March through the end of November. The Oregon Caves National Monument is the perfect place for young and old to get a chance to explore and discover underground caves, and hike through ancient forests.

Escape the hustle of modern life with a stay at Grayback Campground. Located 11 miles east of Cave Junction on Hwy 46 (Caves Hwy), Grayback offers ample sites for tent camping and motor homes, with handicapped spaces available. This welldeveloped campground features restrooms, fire pits at each campsite, available drinking water, and paved parking and roads. There is a one-mile interpretive loop trail and a nearby swimming hole. The west campground boundary is historic Sucker Creek, where one of the first gold strikes in Oregon was located.

The rugged and beautiful Illinois River is home to some of the most intense white-water in the Pacific Northwest. The Illinois is less crowded than the Rogue River and is considered by many to have better rafting. The river is full of Class IV rapids, and the wilder sections even contain a selection of class V rapids (the most difficult of all rapids). These sections are considered to be world-class. They offer a rush that is second to none, but must be approached with extreme caution and care. After you get past the more difficult sections of LakeSelmac.com the river, there is a 10-mile run that is a little easier and offers plenty of great camping. The amazing scenery is what makes the experience truly memorable. The rocky banks of the river are just the beginning of the beautiful sights. A permit is required to raft the Illinois River, but these can be obtained in front of Selma Market in the town of Selma. The best put-in spot is at Miami Bar and shuttles are available to return you to your car. Fishing is also very popular on sections of the river. To get to Miami Bar take Illinois River Rd. out of the town of Selma for about seven miles before veering left and taking the dirt road another nine miles.

Deer Creek Vineyards Wine Tasting

For wine enthusiasts, one of the true pleasures of experiencing a good wine is visiting the vineyard that produced it. Wine, like many things is distinctly a reflection of the factors that go into making it. Where the grapes are grown, the soil, the climate, the type of grapes and the way it is processed all affect the quality of the final product. A visit to Deer Creek Vineyards is the opportunity to enjoy the pleasure of good wine while you experience the true beauty reflected in the contents of your glass. Located in the heart of Southern Oregon and nestled within the Illinois Valley, Deer Creek Vineyards flourishes on farmland that has been home to agriculture for generations. The unique microclimate of the area lends itself beautifully to grape production. High elevation and the marine influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean carried over the Kalmiopsis, are the key elements. These elements contribute to the Illinois Valley’s distinct terrain, creating a cool microclimate, ideal for high-quality Burgundian and Alsatian varietals such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. Visit Deer Creek Vineyard’s wine bar & tasting room to taste wines from Southern Oregon’s various estate-boutique vintners, in addition to their own Deer Creek wines. The bar also offers local microbrews and a Tapas menu using locally grown produce and vendors. Enhance your visit to Deer Creek Vineyards with the perfect treat, a massage surrounded by nature with breathtaking views of the Vineyards and the panoramic Deer Creek Valley.

MYSTIC CORRIDOR ~ Grants Pass & Rogue River

Grants Pass & Rogue River T

he city of Grants Pass is a busy mix of historical and modern, urban and rural. The city still retains historic homes and commercial buildings in its National Historic District. Brochures are available at the Grants Pass Visitors Center at 1995 NW Vine St., and can direct visitors on self-guided walking tours. One of the premiere characteristics of Grants Pass is the Rogue River, which runs through its heart and provides recreation, employment and solace to its residents. The City of Rogue River lies along the banks of the Rogue River just off I-5, only 9 miles from Grants Pass. A great climate and friendly businesses make Rogue River a welcoming place to stay. The convergence of Hwys 99, 199 and I-5 at Grants Pass, plus close proximity to Hwys 234 and 62, make both these towns a great base from which to explore Crater Lake, Oregon Caves National Monument, Redwood National Park, the Oregon coast, Siskiyou National Forest and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

ACTIVITIES IN THE AREA • Shopping and dining, antique stores, unique restaurants and specialty shops • Fishing, boating, waterskiing and swimming; several city parks offer boat ramps, and camping and RV facilities are available at nearby Valley of the Rogue State Park. • Palmerton Arboretum, Rogue River • Grants Pass Museum of Art MORE INFO: VisitGrantsPass.org; RogueWeb.com

The Glass Forge Gallery & Studio

Grants Pass & Rogue River Community Markets

Started in 1998 by Butch Kreuzer, Nathan Sheafor and Lee Wassink, The Glass Forge has quickly become the “hot spot” of Grants Pass. When entering the 5,000-square-foot gallery and studio, viewers can almost touch the molten glass. The furnace that holds 300 pounds of molten glass is always on and running at 2100 F degrees. The blowers take their blowpipes and dip them into the glass, getting an applesized gather on the end. After adding color and manipulating the glass with tools, whose design dates back several hundred years, the glass takes shape. The piece then must be slowly cooled in a kiln-like oven. On the first Friday of every month, Grants Pass has an Art Walk and The Glass Forge has the chance to show off their craft. The gallery has bowls and vases, sculptures and pendant lights. If you don’t see what you like, you may have it made specifically for you, sometimes even on the same day. Tours are more than welcome and the only requirement is to call ahead with groups of 10 or more. Kids are also welcome to come and watch this ancient craft. The studio is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; with glass blowing demonstrations regularly Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. WHERE: 501 SW G St., Grants Pass MORE INFO: (541) 955-0815, GlassForge.com

Visiting a local community market is a great way to get to know any area.

These items reflect where they are from and the efforts of the people who produced them. In Grant’s Pass there are two great community markets to visit and enjoy.

Rogue Wilderness Adventures

Sometimes taking the family out for a wilderness excursion can seem daunting.

They offer a range of rafting activities including multiple day trips, day trips, and half day trips floating down the WildRogue.com Wild and Scenic Rogue River.

ess than 10 miles north of Central Point, lying next to the Rogue River is the town of Gold Hill. When a large gold nugget was found in the early 1800s, miners looking to strike it rich came to the area and Gold Hill was founded. Land was bought and sold, traded and homesteaded and in 1895 the town was incorporated. The Gold Hill Historical Society Museum was established in 1986 and is housed in the Beeman-Martin house, which was built in 1901 and featured the first indoor plumbing in the city. The purpose of the society is to promote, preserve and interpret the rich history of Gold Hill and the surrounding area. The Museum hours are noon to 4 p.m., Thursday through Saturday. For more information, call (541) 855-1182.

Now you can soar high above the Rogue Valley through over 2,700 ft. of Zip on a five Zipline course. The thrilling Rogue Valley Zipline Adventure will have you sailing through treetops, a natural high you won’t forget. A zipline is a cable stretched between poles. Harnessed to the cable, zippers take off, flying through the air, a high-energy rush with amazing views. The certified RV ZIPLINE tour guides will enlighten you with interesting Rogue Valley facts while hiking your way from Zip to Zip. After viewing the valley from above the tree tops you will take your 5th and final Zip of over 1,300 ft. back to the little gold mining town of Kane Creek Canyon (under construction.) Here you will let your adrenaline simmer while endorphins might even have you planning your next tour. The shuttle will then stop at the Historic Braden Gold Mine for one last photo op before you reluctantly head back to reality. Safety guidelines and procedures are in place to ensure your day is safe and worry free, a number one priority. The tours are ADA friendly (not ADA approved) and able to accommodate people with different levels of disabilities, including paralysis.

The Oregon Vortex and House of Mystery

Just when you think you have figured out how things work, you stumble into a place like the House of Mystery. It is claimed that no one standing in this unique vortex stands straight. All who visit seem to subconsciously incline their postures toward magnetic north. Perspectives are thrown off and everything you see seems unbelievable. Seeing really isn’t believing at this remarkable location. The House of Mystery is more than 100 years old and was once used as an assay office where precious metals were evaluated. The story of the Oregon Vortex goes back even further; Native Americans first noticed the insane happenings and named the area “Forbidden Ground.” It was not until relatively recently that scientists have observed and recorded data attempting to explain the astounding anomalies that anyone can see and experience while visiting this mysterious place. Be amazed as things tilt, teeter, grow, and change right before your eyes, throwing off your ability to separate the real from the surreal.

Lillie Belle Farm’s Fine Chocolate

Chocolatier Jeff Shepherd of Lillie Belle Farms Handmade Chocolates was chosen as one of the top ten chocolatiers in the North America in 2009 by Dessert Professional magazine. The award honors the ten North American-based chocolatiers whose confectionery craft exemplifies the use of chocolate, and whose contributions have elevated the chocolate industry. Lillie Belle Farms is a certified organic farm that positively glows with hundreds of organically cultivated raspberry, marionberry and strawberry plants. It is a rich and peaceful place where most of the berries grown are made into fabulous hand-made chocolates using time-honored European techniques with an American twist. Organic Style Magazine calls Lillie Belle Farms’ confections “chocolates to live for.” After 20 years in the restaurant business, Chocolatier Jeff Shepherd started making a few truffles in his home kitchen. Along the way he managed to acquire and replant a defunct berry farm in the Applegate Valley region of Southern Oregon. Jeff, Belle and Lillie Shepherd have now made this their home and their passion. This berry farmer is considered both an artisan and artist chocolatier for his beautiful chocolate and fruit combinations and his incredible culinary design skills. His summer-ripened berry cordials—the best selling of his 60 varieties of chocolates—have become a chocoholic hit. They have been featured in the New York Times and on the Today Show. “He’s no different than a jazz musician, theater actor, photographer or painter,” says CocoAroma Magazine. The Shepherds now operate a beautiful shop in Central Point to showcase their Award-winning confections. With a complete exhibition kitchen in full view of the elegant tasting room, every aspect of the unique chocolate creations made at Lillie Belle Farms can be experienced first hand while munching on tasty free samples. They’re open seven days a week, but weekdays are the best time to see the chocolatiers in action. WHERE: 211 N.

Eagle Point National Veterans Cemetery

Visiting a national cemetery is a chance to walk among headstones that chronicle American history, an opportunity to remember and honor the nation’s war heroes and a place to say a last farewell to family and friends National cemeteries in the United States were introduced during the Civil War, near the battlefields, military hospitals and campgrounds of the war. In 1862, legislation was signed authorizing the federal government to purchase ground for use as national cemeteries “for soldiers who shall have died in the service of the country.” Up till then, the dead were hastily buried in fields, churchyards, or close to the hospitals or prison camps where they died Today, there are 141 national cemeteries in all. Eagle Point National Cemetery is one of three National Cemeteries in the state in the state of Oregon.

Prospect Photogenic Waterfalls Near Prospect

If you like waterfalls, the Upper Rogue Region is the place to visit. Here are four falls we think are spectacular — three are located in or near Prospect off Hwy 62. Pearsony Falls: Take Hwy 62 to Mill Creek Rd. for .75 mile to a large parking area on the left side of the road (if you cross the Rogue River you’ve gone too far). Follow the trail from the north side of the parking lot for about .5 mile to the falls. Barr Creek Falls and Mill Creek Falls: Take Hwy 62 to Mill Creek Rd., through the town of Prospect to the Mill Creek Falls Trailhead, about 1.5 miles. A parking area on the left has a trail leading to both falls. One vantage point provides a slightly obstructed view of both falls. Traveling north is National Creek Falls: The falls are reached by proceeding 5.8 miles on Hwy 230, north of the intersection of Hwys 62 and 230, to FR 6530. Stay left at the major intersection and find the trailhead 3.5 miles from Hwy 230. The trail drops down to the falls in just under .5 mile. Mill Creek Falls, courtesy ProspectHotel.biz

Natural Bridge & Lava Tubes

One of nature’s many wonders is found at the Natural Bridge. The mighty Wild and Scenic Rogue River disappears into a hole in volcanic rock, just to emerge 200 feet downstream. Your visit to the Natural Bridge provides unique opportunities for observing and interpreting one of this area’s most fascinating features. It’s hard to believe your eyes when you stand above the inlet and watch the Rogue River disappear. The river actually flows into an ancient lava tube, or a natural bridge, taking some 35 seconds to travel 200 ft. to reach the tube’s outlet. Seasonal flooding can cause the river to cover the bridge. Looking around, you will see “blow holes” on the surface of the Natural Bridge. These small openings hint of the turbulent nature of the hidden river below. At its peak, approximately 335,000 gallons of water rush from the Natural Bridge each minute at a speed of 6 ft. per second; it’s really moving fast. Not only fast... it’s also cold. Fed by melting snow on the slopes of Mt. Mazama (Crater Lake) in the high Cascades, the river’s temperature varies from 32 to 60 F. The Rouge River received its name from a French-Canadian trapper who named it after the local Indian “Coquins” (rascals or roués). One look at this river will tell you that name is well deserved.

Historic Lithia Park

Historic Lithia Park in Ashland provides the perfect way to get a glimpse of the good old days. At the turn of the 20th century, the park was designed by John McLaren, the man who designed San Francisco’s world-famous Golden Gate Park. Lithia Park may not be as large or as well-known, but it’s certainly fantastic. It is highly regarded for its historic architectural values as well as its landscape design. Lithia Park is also a fully functioning city park and still has some of the original 1915 features, such as Lithia Water Park, the original Butler-Perozzi Fountain Terrace, the upper duck pond and sycamore grove. All these features are favorites at the park to this day. It was the original home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the walls of the original theater still stand, surrounding the Elizabethan Stage. The more modern features of the park include gorgeous manicured lawns, tennis courts, sand pit volleyball courts, a picnic area and playground, all blending seamlessly with the other features which are nearly a century old. Whether you come for the historic value or the great family fun, Lithia Park is worth a visit. WHERE: 59 Winburn St., Ashland MORE INFO: (541) 488-5340, Ashland.Or.Us/Page.asp?NavID=11298

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival

86

Mount Ashland Winter Thrills

Arriving in Ashland you’ll notice a decidedly Elizabethan influence in every way. It is as if William Shakespeare took up residence in the quaint mountain town of just over 20,000. Yes, it’s due to the Tony Award-winning Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF) founded by then Professor Angus Bowmer in 1935. Now it is among the oldest and largest professional non-profit theaters in the nation. Ashland’s OSF recently ranked second in TIME magazine’s list of the five best regional theaters in the U.S., following Chicago’s Goodman Theatre. You’d best get your tickets ‘early.’ Plan to spend a few days in town seeing plays, and dining at Ashland’s famed restaurants, reviewed yearly by the New York Times. For 8.5 months each year (mid-February through early November), OSF performs 11 different plays multiple times in three theaters: America’s First Elizabethan Outdoor Theatre (partially covered by the Allen Pavilion), the Angus Bowmer Theatre, plus the innovative New Theatre. The presentations from OSF are from works of both traditional and adapted, Shakespeare to modern playwrights. With an annual 780 performances, ticket sales are approximately 400,000. MORE INFO: For schedules, or where to find the venues, contact the festival box office at (541) 482-4331 or (800) 219-8161. OSFAshland.org

Looking for a thrilling winter activity? Hit the slopes and spend a day skiing or snowboarding. Whether you never get off the bunny slope or love to spend your days carving and thrashing the moguls on a steep and challenging black diamond, skiing and snowboarding can provide fun and excitement for all. The Mt. Ashland Ski area is the perfect place to test your skills or learn the ropes in Southern Oregon. Nestled in the brilliant Siskiyou Mountains and conveniently located just off of Interstate 5 halfway between Portland and San Francisco, you will love the peaceful views and the challenging slopes. With 23 slopes and one awesome “bowl,” you can have the perfect ski experience. If you do not have your own equipment, don’t worry—you can rent everything you will need for a day, weekend or week on the slopes. If you don’t have the slightest idea what you are doing, you can benefit from lessons. The patient and experienced ski and snowboard instructors will do everything they can to get you up and running down the powdery mountain. In the summer Mt. Ashland caters weddings, family reunions, and company gatherings in a beautiful alpine setting. No matter what the season, excitement and thrills await you at the Mt. Ashland Ski Area.

Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument

The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument is the nation’s first monument designated in recognition of an area’s biological diversity. Located at the crossroads of the Cascade, Klamath, and Siskiyou mountain ranges, scientists have long recognized the outstanding ecological values of the Cascade-Siskiyou area. The convergence of these three geologically distinct mountain ranges has resulted in an area with remarkable biological diversity and a tremendouscourtesy ly varied landscape. The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monu- Bureau of Land ment provides visitors with great recre- Management, ational and educational opportunities. See BLM.gov/or towering conifer forests, sunlit oak woodlands, wildflower-strewn meadows, lush wetlands, meandering streams, rock gardens and steep canyons. Explore numerous archaeological and historical sites, including areas of traditional cultural importance to the local native people. Enjoy hikes to spots like Boccard Point, overlooking a 360° panorama from the Rogue Valley and Mt. McLoughlin to the north to Shasta and its basin to the south. BACKGROUND: The Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument consists of approximately 54,000 acres of BLM-administered land in rugged Southern Oregon. Once a rugged mountain landscape covered by a forest of trees so massive that the sun could barely penetrate their canopy, the Southern Cascades and Siskiyous were for millennia, courtesy Green Springs Inn and Cabins, GreenSpringsInn.com a natural wonder. Today the magnificent mountains remain, but the forest is just a shadow of what it once was. What is left however, is an array of biological, geological, hydrological, archeological and historic resources. A genetic heritage that has survived decades of logging and grazing, collectively comprising a unique, diverse ecosystem. Protection and restoration of this biological community is the mission assigned to the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.

JACKSONVILLE

Jacksonville

S

et amid the foothills of the Siskiyou Mountains is the historic town of Jacksonville. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966, Jacksonville is a wonderful place to stroll and experience a time from years gone by. The town is so well preserved with saloons and historic buildings one might expect cowboys to come flying out of swinging saloon doors and a gunfight to ensue in the street. Instead, the stately brick buildings are home to numerous shops, restaurants and hostelries, and the streets are filled with wandering tourists, not cowboys. During the summer months, those with sore feet can opt for a horse-drawn carriage or trolley car for open-air transportation.

Segway of Jacksonville

During the 1850’s in Jacksonville, gold miners roamed the streets. Pioneers, roughnecks and men on horseback would clip-clop down the main thoroughfare, most likely with a six-shooter holstered to their side. Visitors to Jacksonville still saunter through the streets, but can now do so on a Segway PT, a two-wheeled self-balancing personal transportation device. Segway of Jacksonville features a 2-hour “Glide Through History Tour.” This tour takes you through town, past the old courthouse, jail, the first bank and first church in southern Oregon and up to Britt Gardens. You will hear stories of the early pioneers and wild shenanigans that made Jacksonville famous. The tour also makes its way through the Historic Jacksonville Cemetery and provides amazing views of the Rogue Valley wine region. Want to explore the town on your own, at your own pace? Segway PT rental packages start by the hour and can be extended to weekly or even monthly rates. Open daily, rain or shine, during Summer (June-Sept); open Tues-Sat, or by appointment the rest of the year. WHERE: 360 North Oregon St in Jacksonville MORE INFO: (541) 899-5269, SegwayOfJacksonville.com

You do not have to be in a big city to hear great performers playing fantastic music. The Britt Music Festival offers the perfect opportunity to see fabulous performing artists throughout summer and into early fall. No matter what your tastes are in music, you will find a concert or concerts to attend. Everything from country music, oldies, jazz, pop and dance music, to a three-day classical music extravaganza is represented at this summer-long concert series. There is a concert every couple of days. Enjoy the beautiful northwestern summer weather while listening to the music. The naturally formed amphitheater is nestled between majestic ponderosa pines and madrones on the 19th-century estate of famed photographer Peter Britt. The Britt Music Festival has been providing world-class entertainment to Oregonians and beyond for more than 40 years. The Britt Festival Gardens and Amphitheater is located in Jacksonville, five miles west of Medford and 20 miles north of Ashland, within a day’s trip from Seattle and San Francisco. The Britt Festival’s organization also presents concerts at the new 5,900 seat Lithia Motors Amphitheater at the Jackson County Expo Park in Central Point. MORE INFO: (800) 882-7488, BrittFest.org

Though it might seem an odd place to stop in for a stroll, the Historic Jacksonville Cemetery is one of the area’s most beautiful spots. The hilltop burial ground is shaded by mossy trees and offers a spectacular view of Jacksonville. The cemetery itself has its own appeal. It is filled with gorgeous headstones and monuments, some dating all the way back to the mid-19th century when the cemetery was founded. Many of them have unique and often tragic stories to tell. The Historic Jacksonville Cemetery is the final resting place for many of the town’s previous residents, and is home to Jacksonville’s history. A walk through the headstones is like taking a stroll through time. Grave markers commemorate the lives and deaths of citizens and soldiers, pioneers and pastors, town fathers and miners. Many of the people who helped to build Jacksonville are buried here, including miner turned photographer Peter Britt (the first person to photograph Crater Lake); William Green T’Vault, who ran the first town paper The Table Rock Sentinel; and carpenter David Linn, who produced such diverse goods as furniture, mining equipment and baseball bats. Also at rest here are members of societies like the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the Freemasons, and the Order of the Red Men. You will find the Jacksonville Cemetery at the edge of town, at the end of E St. MORE INFO: (541) 899-1231 Please say you saw it in 101 Things To Do ®

Upper and Lower Table Rocks

About 10 miles northeast of Medford are two eye-catching buttes—Upper and Lower Table Rock. They are composed of sandstone with erosion-resistant lava caps deposited during a massive Cascade eruption around five million years ago. Over the years, wind and water erosion have created near vertical slabs of geology. More than 140 kinds of plants reside in the area creating an exquisite wildflower display that reaches its zenith in April. There are abundant lichens and mosses, which grow on the lava, painting the black basalt with luxuriant greens and fluorescent yellows during the wetter months. The two-mile trail to the top of the horseshoe-shaped Lower Table Rock is a hikers’ treat. Be sure to look for the “mima mounds” or “patterned ground” that distinguishes the surface of the butte. How the mounds were formed is still a matter of scientific debate. The trail up Upper Table Rock is a little over a mile and steeper. It’s sticky and slippery in the wet season, but affords wonderful vistas of the Rogue River and Sams Valley to the north. There are two benches along the way—perfect places to stop, rest and savor the view. WHERE: Take Hwy 62 northeast out of Medford to Central Point Exit (Exit 33), then east about one mile to Table Rock Rd. and turn north (left). Continue 7.6 miles, passing Tou Velle State Park, then turn east. Continue for about one mile to the signed parking lot on your left.

Medford Railroad Park

Railroads and locomotives played an enormous role in the development of the West Coast. The Transcontinental Railroad connected both coasts of our vast continent and allowed Oregon to grow and develop commercially, culturally and industrially. In order to best understand this area, you must learn about the railroad. The best way to do that is to take a trip to Medford Railroad Park. There is so much for the family to do at this fun and interactive park. Hop on one of the real-life trains that loop around the mile-long track winding through the park. This ride is both fun and educational as you experience what it was like to travel 150 years ago. Can you imagine riding in a train for days on end?

is Grizzly Creek State Park, a favorite for hiking, camping and summer sun. Hwy 36 passes through the towns of Hydesville, Carlotta and Bridgeville, and continues on to the hamlet of Mad River and to Ruth Lake. Ruth Lake, at an elevation of 2,650 feet and bordered by ponderosas and firs, was formed in 1962 by the damming of the Mad River. The Victorian Village of Ferndale is just northwest of Fortuna and 16 miles south of Eureka. The entire town has been named a State Historical Landmark because of its strong preservation policies of commercial buildings and residences. Eureka contains more fine examples of Victorian architecture, particularly in the Old Town section along the city’s waterfront. Old Town is home to the extravagantly ornate Carson Mansion, one of the most photographed buildings in California. Eureka’s population of nearly 28,000 makes it the largest coastal city between San Francisco and the Oregon border. Eureka has a multitude of excellent restaurants, cafes, specialty shops and lodging facilities. The city is also known for its large and active arts community. In fact, Humboldt County has the distinction of having more artists per capita than any other of the state’s 58 counties. Eureka is a busy seaport with a large fishing fleet. A variety of activities can be found in and around the waters of Humboldt Bay, including kayaking, fishing and even spotting a harbor seal or two. There are harbor tours aboard the M.V. Madaket, and the Woodley Island Marina is a great spot to enjoy a panoramic view of the waterfront. Seven miles north of Eureka is Arcata, home to Humboldt State University. Arcata is also known for its unique marsh and wildlife area that serves as a natural sewage treatment filtration system. East of Arcata, along Hwy 299 and Hwy 96 are sunny Willow Creek and Hoopa, known for recreation along the Trinity and Klamath Rivers and their tributaries. Back along Hwy 101 the town of McKinleyville serves as the home of the Arcata-Eureka Airport, the county’s only commercial airport. In northern Humboldt County are the coastal jewels of Trinidad, which overlooks a beautiful sheltered harbor, and Orick, the gateway to Redwood National Park.
