7.8 miles of hiking • 500' elevation gain •
I decided to break up the drive north on I-5 with a quick out and back on the North Umpqua trail. Awesome day and perfect hike. The only thing I would do differently if I went again, would be to drive a few more miles down the road, to do a section further upstream. In the first 2 miles,there is a burn section that would be wonderful during fireweed season, but not so exciting for just a short leg stretcher. There are some wonderful big old trees in there once you get out of the burn and lots of lovely green.
