North Umpqua Trail #1414

Take a Hike!

Hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, photography, fishing, and sightseeing opportunities abound in the spectacular setting of the North Umpqua Trail in the Cascade mountains of the Pacific Northwest.

In the early 1970s, local trail advocates envisioned a trail extending from Rock Creek to the Cascades.  Construction began in 1978 and was completed in 1997 through cooperative efforts of many dedicated volunteers, the Umpqua National Forest, Roseburg District Bureau of Land Management, and Douglas County Parks Department.
