April 11, 2015 Acker Divide Trail. The Friends of the Umpqua Hiking Club is planning a hike on the Acker Divide Trail. This will be a moderate 6 or 7 mile hike or less if desired. It will be an out and back moderate hike, starting out from Grasshopper Meadows, and continuing past Cripple Camp on the Rogue Umpqua Divide. The route to the trailhead will take about 2 hours plus rest stop time going past Canyonville and Tiller. The rare Acker Divide Buckwheat flower may be in bloom by then so hikers should look for it in mountain crevices with a south exposure. The group meets before 8 am in the Douglas County Courthouse parking lot (behind the Library). Bring lunch water, rain gear and be prepared to share car pool expenses. For more information, call Edwin Case at 541-839-4334.
