The North Umpqua Trail is a multi-use trail open for hiking, mountain biking and horse-back riding that follows the North Umpqua River in Southern Oregon, United States. The trail is about 79 miles (127 km) long. It is broken up into 12 segments, ranging from 3.5 to 13 miles (21 km) in length. The trail ranges in elevation from 800 feet (240 m) to about 6,000 feet (1,800 m).[1]

Route[edit]

The North Umpqua Trail is a designated National Recreation Trail and follows the North Umpqua River as it winds west out of the Cascades and towards the city of Roseburg, Oregon. The trail is inside the Roseburg District BLM and Umpqua National Forest lands and closely follows the river for most of its length. It has been designated by the International Mountain Biking Association as an 'Epic Ride', an honor bestowed on only a handful of trails around the world.
