The Wild & Scenic section of the Rogue River is a 36 mile stretch of river that traverses through a wild, rugged, and remote area of southwestern Oregon. This special section of river is a considered one of the very best multi-day rafting trips in North America.

The Wild & Scenic stretch of river differentiates itself from the rest of the Rogue with a special congressional designation that protects the river and corridor from future development. The Rogue River has enjoyed this designation since being one of the original eight Wild & Scenic Rivers designated in 1968. What is “Wild & Scenic?”
