For a birdseye view of the Upper Rogue area, drive the winding gravel road up to the top of Flounce Rock. Just short of the top, take a 5 minute walk out to a rare population of Baker Cypress. Those with higher clearance vehicles can drive the final one-third mile to the top, and park at the microwave towers. A short, unmaintained trail to the south provides an unobstructed view of Lost Creek Lake, the Rogue River valley, and the Cascades.
From Medford: Travel north on Highway 62 through the town of Shady Cove, and past Lost Creek Lake. After crossing the bridge over the Rogue River, continue 2.5 miles and turn left on Ulrich Road, located near milemarker 38. Travel another 2.5 miles to a "Y" junction, and take the left fork onto BLM Road 32-2E-34. Travel 4.2 miles to a wide parking area. The trail to a small population of Bakers Cypress is through the rail fence on the left. Vehicles with high clearance can travel another 1/3 mile up to the top of Flounce. Note: After leaving Highway 62, the first mile is through a residential neighborhood - please drive slowly to keep the dust down. This route is a narrow, steep, winding road not recommended for vehicles pulling trailers. Access is weather dependent, and is not accessible during winter.
