Red Buttes map

The Red Buttes Wilderness, designated by Congress in 1984, is a land of craggy peaks, cold mountain streams, and extensive stands of old-growth forests with occasional meadows and other openings. Situated in both Oregon and California, the Red Buttes Wilderess (20,323 acres) includes the jagged crest of the Siskiyou Mountains along the watershed divide between the Rogue River and Klamath River drainages. The Wilderness is approximately 13 miles long and 6 miles wide, with elevations ranging from about 2,800 feet above sea level in the Butte Fork Canyon, to almost 6,740 feet at the east summit of Red Buttes.

Sky Lakes map

Sky Lakes Wilderness, designated by Congress in 1984, is famous for its multitudes of mountain lakes, rocky ridges, and timbered slopes. Sky Lakes Wilderness (113,590 acres) straddles southern Oregon's Cascade Range, from the southern boundary of Crater Lake National Park, southward to Highway 140. It is approximately six miles wide and twenty-seven miles long, with elevations ranging from 3,800 feet in the canyon of the Middle Fork of the Rogue River, to a lofty 9,495 feet at the top of Mount McLoughlin.

Siskiyou Wilderness map

The forested mountains, valleys and meadows of the Siskiyou Wilderness in California offer vistas of incredible beauty, diverse landscapes and remote solitude. Designated in 1984, the Siskiyou Wilderness was named for the rugged mountain headwaters of the Smith, Klamath and Illinois rivers in northwestern California. Forested ridges with high craggy peaks, fragile mountain meadows, small glacial lakes, and a mosaic of dense old-growth confier forest, mixed hardwood and shrub vegetation characterize the Siskiyou Wilderness landscapes.

2018 RR Float Guide

It is our pleasure to jointly manage this National treasure with the Medford District Bureau of Land Management! The BLM administers the Wild and Scenic Rogue River corridor from the Applegate River downstream to Mule Creek. The RRSNF administers from Mule Creek downstream to Lobster Creek. This guide not only contains maps of sections of the river from start to finish, it also provides insight into campsite capacities, amenities, and sights along the way.

Are there maps that tell me where I can drive a motorized vehicle?

Yes! Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs)  are available for FREE at each District, and show which routes and areas are designated as being open for motorized use, by vehicle type and open season of use. These maps are designed to be used in conjunction with the Recreation or District Maps; visitors need to plan accordingly.
