Calf and Panther sections (N. Umpqua Trail)- Friends of the Umpqua
February 8, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
February 8 – Calf and Panther sections (N. Umpqua Trail): Driving time: 45 minutes. Distance: Approximately 9 miles. Type of hike: Shuttle. The North Umpqua River has a distinctive turquoise color in the winter and what better way to see it than from the North Umpqua Trail? This area has been hit by several wildfires over the last several years and while we don’t like wildfires in general, the views of the river in its canyon has been improved. The trail does go up and down quite a bit and for those wanting to hike a shorter distance, there is an option of just hiking the Calf Section which would be just under 4 miles. For more information call or text Lane Harris 541-643-9278.
Meet – The group meets before 8 am in the Douglas County Courthouse parking lot behind the Roseburg Public Library. In general, most hikes take an hour to an hour and a half driving time each direction.
Bring – Each person should bring water, lunch, layers of clothing including raingear. If you wish to carpool then please come prepared to share gas expenses. Driving time to trailheads and hike length are estimates only.
Be Prepared – Wear seasoned boots. Stay with the group and on the trail. If lost, stay put. Each hiker hikes at his or her own risk and is responsible for his or her own health, safety and welfare. Hiking destinations may be changed due to weather conditions or other concerns.
