North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River

Overview:

Pack your fishing gear and your raft and bring family and friends, because this corridor has something for everyone. This North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River Corridor is known for its stunning forest setting with the emerald green waters of the North Umpqua running right through the heart of it. Nestled amongst old-growth trees, one can relax at Susan Creek Campground, take a hike along the river on the 1.5 mile long Emerald Trail or stroll up the short trail to 50’ tall Susan Creek Falls. Anglers from across the country, flock to the North Umpqua to fly-fish for the elusive salmon and steelhead. The 79-mile long North Umpqua Trail is perfect for longer distance hikes and mountain bike excursions.
