“This rough and rugged historical trail connects eastern Gold Beach area near Lobster Creek to the town of Agness.”— Erin Kessler
The westernmost access to the trail itself starts off from the small parking area at the corner of Agness Illahe Rd and Cougar Lane near the air strip, or at the community building off Cougar Lane.
This is a rough and narrow trail and work is currently being done in 2018 to rehab and clean up the trail. Expect steep climbs, some clambering (due to downed trees), washouts, stream crossings, and patches of poison oak. The trail follows along the north bank of the famous Rogue River. Look for black bears, salmon, ospreys, eagles, and other wildlife as you wind along the river.
The eastern section within 1-2 miles of Agness is a little better, but look out for fallen trees and washouts after winter storms. Agness has some limited amenities, camping, and seasonal restaurants available.
