Rainie Falls Trail

Take a hike down the 1.8-mile Rainie Falls trail following a portion of the mighty and wild section of the Rogue National Wild and Scenic River. Oaks, madrones and a variety of verdant vegetation line this path to the falls. This short trail is cut on the opposite -but generally shadier- side of the Rogue River where it's much longer cousin, the Rogue River National Recreation Trail traverses 40 miles from Grave Creek to Big Bend.

Know Before You Go:

  • Parking is available opposite the trailhead in the pullout across Galice Road.
  • No facilities are available at the trailhead or at Rainie Falls, but a vault toilet is located at the Grave Creek Boat Ramp, across the Grave Creek Bridge.

Point of Interest:

A little over a mile down the trail, look along the river side of the trail for remnants of a hexagonal suspension bridge abutment, built in 1908. The bridge washed out in 1927 and is evidence of the area's rich mining history.
