An early breakfast and a short shuttle will bring us to the start of our bike ride. We set out to bike the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway, a beautiful stretch of road winding through heavy forests.
After a picnic lunch, we explore by trail the Upper Rogue River, designated a Wild and Scenic River. Sculpting its path through the volcanic landscape created by the Cascade Range and the eruption of Mt. Mazama, the landscape offers examples of nearly vertical incised pumice canyons, remnant cores of an ancient volcano now known as Rabbit Ears, and a lava tube arching across the entire Rogue River at Natural Bridge.
We transfer to Ashland, our base for the rest of this adventure (~1.5 hours).
Tonight settle into Lithia Springs Resort, your home for the next 3 nights.
