Mission accomplished! The third and final phase of the Rogue River Nature Trail is now complete. Bultsma Construction has made good on a promised May 10 completion date and the award-winning trail is now open for foot traffic.

The entire Rogue River Nature Trail was constructed primarily as a boardwalk with picturesque Rogue River vistas along with observation and fishing platforms. From its southern origin at James St. and Longview Dr. on the City’s southwest side, the trail extends northward to its terminus at a sidewalk connector to Chelsea Ct. in the Riverchase Neighborhood.

Looking south from the Chelsea St. sidewalk connector, the Rogue River Nature Trail boardwalk winds riverside southward to the Rogue River Dam. On the far left behind the trees, notice the spur connector to the newly installed river edge fishing and observation platform. Photo by CLIFF HILL

Not quite a mile in total length and handicap accessible, the Rogue River Nature Trail begs to be discovered if you haven’t already done so.
