North Umpqua Trail #1414.05 Marsters Segment

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Offering visitors a bird's eye view of the river below, the 3.6-mile trail winds through moss-covered rock bluffs, past fern-covered hillsides, and through lush forests, before passing above an old-growth Douglas-fir grove where you can find several 5 to 7 foot diameter giants more than 800 years old.

Where the trail crosses the river near Wilson Creek, you will see the Weeping Rocks where Chinook salmon begin and end their lives. This watchable wildlife area, just off Highway 138 on Forest Road 4770, shows the spawning beds where adult Chinook salmon return each year from September to November to spawn and then die. The eggs then hatch in spring, after which the salmon normally spend less than five months in the river before migrating to the Pacific Ocean. Interpretive information is available on-site.
