Hike the Rogue Trail and support KS Wild!
Spend five days hiking on the historic Rogue River Trail and help protect this special canyon.
The Rogue was one of the first rivers in the nation to be recognized as a National Wild and Scenic River and hiking the 40 mile Rogue River National Trail is a great way to enjoy this remarkable place. Making that experience even better will be not having to carry anything on your back! ARTA raft guides will ferry all of the camping gear and food by boat, allowing you to enjoy a steady pace (8 miles per day) with a light daypack and then enjoy riverside camping with fresh, hearty meals, thick, heavy sleeping pads and glorious, decadent chairs! This will be an amazing trip; reserve your space now.
The Rogue Canyon is rich in flora, fauna, and human history and hiking the Rogue River Trail is a wonderful way to experience it. KS Wild staffers Amy Schlotterback & Holly Christansen will join you on the trail for naturalizing, history & a general orientation to the landscape. We'll see spectacular wildflowers like shooting star, scarlet fritillary, and seepspring monkeyflower; we'll watch soaring raptors like Osprey and Bald Eagle and we'll hear the silent stories of bygone miners and homesteaders. And we'll learn about the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, modern forestry and mining practices, anadromous fish, and all of the other hidden connections in wild nature. Bring your camera, binoculars, sketch book, and best friend!
ARTA will donate $100 per participant to benefit KS Wild's work to expand the Wild Rogue Wilderness.
