Join Momentum River Expeditions and ultra runners Jenn Shelton and Billy Barnett on a 3-Day raft supported Trail Running Trip along Oregon’s Wild and Scenic Rogue River.  Combine the world famous Rogue River Trail with comfortable raft supported river side camping and gourmet meals.

The Rogue River is an iconic American classic; one of the world’s great wilderness rivers, a founding member of the National Wild and Scenic River System, and a river with such a grand reputation that in some circles it is simply known as “The Canyon”. The Rogue River National Recreation Trail from Grave Creek to Foster Bar cuts through the heart of the canyon and offers stunning views of the river and unique access to a wilderness playground that is home to a staggering amount of wildlife.  The trail is 40 miles of wilderness single-track that is only accessed from the start, the finish, or by river.

Runners will be guided by Jenn and Billy and each day will include around 15 miles of running with options for more.  This is a raft supported trip and runners do not need to carry anything except for water and snacks (all personal overnight clothing will be transported by raft). Each afternoon the groups will arrive at a fully set-up and very comfortable wilderness river side camp where you can swim and float the river, play beach games, or just relax, have a beverage, and take it all in. Appetizers and diner will be served under the stars followed by an evening around the campfire and a good nights sleep. All camping gear is included and there is always the option to jump in a raft for the day or part of the day.

This trip is a unique and amazing way to explore the world famous Rogue River and do a multi-day wilderness run without all the gear or planning.  We are very excited about this trip!

ITINERARY / TRAIL MAP:

Please Note: Our trips take place in the wonderfully unpredictable natural environment. Because of this our itineraries are always flexible to accommodate weather, guest needs, abilities, and interests.

Day 1:
The trip starts near Grants Pass, Oregon at the Galice Resort, located along the banks of the Rogue River. Here we will help you pack your dry bags and get any last minute “must haves” at the resort. We then head to the river, meet the crew, and do an orientation talk. After loading our overnight gear into a raft we will head down the trail into the heart of the Rogue River Canyon.  For three days we will follow the Rogue as it cuts through the remote and wild Siskiyou Mountain Range.  Each afternoon we will arrive at a fully set-up and very comfortable wilderness river side camp where you can swim and float the river, play beach games, or just relax, have a beverage, and take it all in. Appetizers and diner will be served under the stars followed by an evening around the campfire.

Day one will be between 14 and 15 miles and will end somewhere around Kelsey Creek.  It will include views of the Famous Rainey Falls, Whiskey Creek Cabin, and Horseshoe Bend.

Day 2:
Day two will be between 14 and 15 miles with options to add 4 to 12 more miles (the group can be split depending on what runners are interested in).  The day will end around Half Moon Bar. Day 2 is spectacular and includes the amazing Mule Creek Canyon section and views of Blossom Bar rapid.

Day 3:
Day 3 will be around 12 miles with options to add 4 to 10 more (the group can be split depending on what runners are interested in).  The day will include Huggins Canyon and some of the best opportunities to see Black Bear. We reach the end of our river trip in the early afternoon and load up in our van to make the drive back over beautiful Bear Camp road to Galice Resort .
