Panther Segment

Length: 5 miles


This portion serves as an excellent year-round trail for hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians. The Trail passes by alder-covered gravel bars, then clibs to rocky bluffs away from the river.

The picturesque Steamboat Area has served as a retreat to countless visitors through time. From traditional peoples who gathered food here, to miners vainly searching for gold, to a century of tourists, this area has drawn visitors from around the world.

Mott Bridge

The original North Umpqua Highway was built in 1926. Today this route is a six-mile side trail (#1530) that offers hikers and mountain bikers a loop opportunity when combined with the Mott Segment of the North Umpqua Trail and Highway 138. Access to the trail is either from Bogus Creek Campground on the west end or just off Highway 138 on Forest Road 38 on the east end.
