The Rogue River begins in the Cascade Range of Southern Oregon and empties into the Pacific Ocean some 200 miles later in the heart of the spectacular Oregon coast. Its beauty earned it a spot as one of the eight charter members of the National Wild and Scenic River System. We offer 1/2 day trips on the “Nugget” section of the Rogue River.

Why Momentum on the Rogue?
Our half day trip on the Rogue is one of Momentum’s three original trips. It is a great introduction to whitewater, one of our backyard rivers, and one we know like the back of our hands.

The same guides that guide our trips throughout Oregon, Northern California, Idaho, and abroad run our “Nugget“ trips – guides with a minimum of 5 years of experience on many of the world’s most difficult whitewater rivers, and guides that truly enjoy sharing the outdoors and their outdoor experiences with others.

The Nugget run of the Rogue is a great trip for those wanting a fun float with a few bigger rapids. We may see blue herons, golden eagles, and probably a fisherman or two. A very pleasant 1/2 day rafting trip capped with Nugget Falls and Powerhouse rapids. The Rogue is a wonderful taste of whitewater excitement, and is great for the intrepid first timer, families, and those on a short time schedule.


Join us on the Rogue and see why it has marked the beginning of a whitewater addiction for many of our guests.

  • "Alan, We had a wonderful time, too. How nice of you to follow-up. Mike hasn't stopped talking about it and Noelle keeps coming up with ideas on how to go with her future classmates. Personally, I was impressed with your professional "cool reserve" style - it made me feel safe and in good hands, yet adventurous enough to let go and enjoy the excitement. I hope it's OK to ask for you in the future. Stay "cool"! And we'll see you again soon... Janice "
  • "Hi Alex, Adam and Rachel: Thank you! What a fantastic trip. You guys were great. Thanks for all trips and also for the tips on the hiking trail. It seems like the philosophy was to go out of the way to make sure that everyone got to do something special that they liked. You all sure work hard. I can't tell you what a treat it is not to have to cook and clean. I think that's almost my favorite part. So hope you all have a good year. Tell Alex good luck with school and I'm sure all the 6th graders are eagerly awaiting his return. Good luck to Adam and Rachel with traveling and exploring the world. Thanks again to all. It was a memorable experience. "
