I say this elsewhere, but in the event you haven't read it, we began this section of the upper Rogue wild and scenic river hikin in others. The river can be calm and wild. The trail climbs high above the river where it bends sharply and rages through the narrow chute of a collapsed lava tube. This beautiful rapids is known as Knob Falls.

The area around Woodruff Bridge is also a favorite fishing spot. Please use caution around the water - the river is dangerous due to extremely cold water and a strong, forceful current.

Forward ~ The Rogue River at the trailhead for the
Natural Bridge on the upper Rogue wild and scenic river hiking trail, or if it's your preference, the Rogue
Natural Bridge Interpretative hiking trail.
