Deer Leap Segment

Length: 9.6 miles

Moderate (west to east) - Difficult (east to west)

Named after a volcanic plug that rises 1500-feet above the river, this trail segment follows high along the canyon rim. At the western end, you'll pass by the Soda Springs Dam and Reservoir, then cross Medicine and Slide Creeks. Look for a great view from an open bluff 500 feet above the North Umpqua River.

A side trip will take you to see Medicine Creek Indian Pictographs, one-mile up Road 4775. Please respect this cultural heritage site. Near Toketee Lake is Toketee Falls, a double-tiered waterfall plunging 80 and 40-feet over a sheer wall of columnar basalt to the emerald pool below.
