Upcoming Friends of the Umpqua hike

The next Friends of the Umpqua Hiking Club hike is scheduled for Nov. 2

The group will explore the Jessie Wright Segment of the North Umpqua Trail. This area was hit by fire several summers ago and the group believes it will be interesting to observe a forest in recovery. They will hike from Highway 138 to Boulder Creek Bridge and back. The trail passes underneath Eagle Rock and Old Man Rock, distinctive volcanic landmarks along the North Umpqua River. The round trip distance is close to six miles and the hike is rated moderate as it’s a fairly level route. Mileage-addicted hikers can continue further to Soda Springs Dam prior to turning around for a nine mile hike.

Information: Call or text Lane Harris 541-643-9278.
