Dread & Terror Segment

Length: 13 miles


In 1908, two rangers on horseback named a four-mile ridgeline south of the river as "Dread and Terror" in reference to the disagreeable possibility of fighting forest fires in the impenetrable thickets of white thorn brush blanketing the area.

Many forms of flowing water make this segment unique. Just east of the Umpqua Hot Springs, you'll discover Surprise and Columnar Falls. Several miles farther you'll find Lemolo Falls, a wonderful 102-foot "horesetail-type" falls.
