Hike Coordinator – Richard O’Neill The day after this hike, cold, rain, snow, slush, wind, and sleet came to stay for an extended visit that really curtailed hiking festivities for the time being. But on this Saturday at Bullards Beach, who really cared about all that? The weather was fantastically sunny, albeit a bit on ………….click here to read more.
Hike Coordinator – Brad Bishop Two carloads of hearty hikers braved the cold, the Rogue and a rookie hike leader on our Graves Creek to Whiskey Creek adventure on January 27. Would it snow?

Hike Coordinator – Lane Harris On this superbly sunny day in January, and the first club hike of 2018, Lane led over 30 (maybe 40?…) eager hikers on a hike through the inland forests and sandy beaches of Cape Blanco.

Hike Coordinator – Edwin Case A mid-November day blessed a dozen hikers with unusually great weather and an outstanding hike on one of the most beautiful stretches along the Rogue River. Our leader for this hike, Edwin, met us in Riddle to begin the day’s expedition. The road to the trailhead was quite twisty, but ………….click here to read more.
Hike Coordinator – Edwin Case The weather gods were kind to us, sort of. It had rained entire bathtubs of water for the week prior but we actually drove to the trailhead under a semi-blue sky. However, once we started hiking, it dark clouds floated in and took away the sun. This was the tail ………….click here to read more.
Hike Coordinator – Richard O’Neill Rain, rain, rain…so much rain. That would explain why only 5 hikers showed up for this hike. Originally, the hike was slated for a circumnavigation of Clear Lake but as we drove up the McKenzie Highway, the temperature dropped and was rapidly approaching freezing temperatures.
