Currently impassable. This is a rough and narrow trail and work is currently being done in 2018 to rehab and clean up the trail. Expect steep punchy climbs/hike-a-bikes, carry-overs (due to downed trees), washouts, stream crossings, and patches of poison oak. The trail follows along the north bank of the famous Rogue River. Look for black bears, salmon, ospreys, eagles and other wildlife as you trek along the river. The eastern section within 1-2 miles of Agness is a little better, albeit confusing to navigate, but look for fallen trees and washouts after winter storms. Agness has some limited amenities, camping, and seasonal restaurants available.
You can access this backcountry trail from either Agness (end of Cougar Rd.) or just east of Lobster Creek. From Highway 101 in Gold Beach, take either Jerrys Flat Road or North Bank Rogue River Road to Lobster Creek bridge. Cross the bridge (if applicable) to the north side of the Rogue River and follow the signs to Lower Rogue River Trail Trailhead down a rugged gravel road. The trail itself starts off from the small parking area.
Access from Agness: From Agness Illahe Rd, take a right at the Old Agness Store onto Cougar Ln. You can park along the road or at the Community Building across from Lucas Lodge. Follow the dirt road until you see the narrow trail to the right.
This historical, primitive trail (frequented by hikers) is currently being rehabbed and repaired in 2018 with help from USFS and WRCMBA
