Explore the Rogue River Gorge

Rogue River Gorge Viewpoint - Search Nearby - Added by Jason Hatfield

A small but beautiful volcanic gorge surrounded by a stunning forest.

This 500 ft. long gorge carved out of an old lava tube sits right along highway 62 near Crater Lake. The original road that brought travelers to the National Park passed right next to the gorge but it now remains hidden from view of the current highway. The area isn't large but has a nice parking area and 500 ft. long paved trail that follows right along the edge. At the head of the gorge sits a waterfall where the river splits around an basalt talus island and a little further up is some interesting rock formations and moss covered trees. If it's not overcast get here early in the morning for some nice sidelight in the gorge and surrounding forest.
