Probably the most spectacular (and popular) of the North Umpqua Trail segments. The trail features fast downhills, technical rock gardens and punchy climbs. This segment has waterfall views and even a 'waterfall' rock garden on the trail Parts of the trail run right along the river while others are high above it. Trail surface is varied, but consistently rocky and rooty. Parts of the trail are very wet, even in the summertime. This section is often shuttled along with the Hot Springs segment, but it makes for a fun and challenging ride to take it upriver!

Access Info

The western end is located at the Umpqua Hot Springs trailhead (this is a fee area). To get to the eastern end, take highway 138 east from Roseburg to Forest Road 2610 (Lemolo Lake turn-off). Drive approximately 4.5 miles before turning left on Forest Road 3401 (Thorn Prairie Road). Proceed 0.5 miles and turn right onto Forest Road 3401-800. Go 3 miles to Forest Road 3401-701. The trailhead is about 0.5 mile at the end of the unimproved road.

       Can you update the track to include the last section of trail? The current track cuts out onto the road for the last couple of miles.

       It is more difficult from the overgrowth and trees down. I did it and Hotsprings segment and it was tough.

       Trail is in great shape thanks to Mike/Mudslinger and crew. Still several giant trees down which will need rigging or dynamite to remove. Would be a fun project Smile

       Rode about 4 miles up from the hot springs. Spotted a family of 3 very large bears on a log crossing the river towards where the trail went so I turned around. Cleared the trail everywhere I could without loppers or a saw. Still several difficult and dangerous downed trees and rock and mud slides to carry bikes over and around.
