TRIP DETAILS AND OPTIONS:
We offer two Rogue Running itineraries and each day includes around 11 to 19 miles of running with options for more. All itineraries do the full trail and they are all raft supported – meaning runners do not need to carry anything except for water and snacks (all personal overnight clothing will be transported by raft).
Please Note: Our trips take place in the wonderfully unpredictable natural environment. Because of this our itineraries are always flexible to accommodate weather, guest needs, abilities, and interests.
The trip starts near Grants Pass, Oregon at the Galice Resort, located along the banks of the Rogue River. Here we will help you pack your dry bags and get any last minute “must haves” at the resort. We then head to the river, meet the crew, and do an orientation talk. After loading our overnight gear into a raft we will head down the trail into the heart of the Rogue River Canyon. For three days we will follow the Rogue as it cuts through the remote and wild Siskiyou Mountain Range. Each afternoon we will arrive at a wilderness Lodge or a fully set-up and very comfortable wilderness river side camp where you can swim and float the river, play beach games, or just relax, have a beverage, and take it all in. Appetizers and dinner (we used to say ‘diner’ but because Jenn is an anal retentive writer we fixed it) will be served under the stars or on the deck followed by an evening in one of the most famous wilderness river corridors in the world.
Day one will be between 10 and 15 miles depending on the trip (it will end between Black Bar and somewhere around Kelsey Creek). It will include views of the Famous Rainey Falls and Whiskey Creek Cabin.
Day two will be between 15 and 19 miles with options to add 4 to 12 more miles (the group can be split depending on what runners are interested in). The day will end around Half Moon Bar. Day 2 is spectacular and includes the amazing Mule Creek Canyon section and views of Blossom Bar rapid.
Day 3 will be around 12 miles with options to add 4 to 10 more (the group can be split depending on what runners are interested in). The day will include Huggins Canyon and some of the best opportunities to see Black Bear. We reach the end of our river trip in the early afternoon and load up in our van to make the drive back over beautiful Bear Camp road to Galice Resort.
