The Rogue River begins in the Cascade Range of Southern Oregon and empties into the Pacific Ocean some 200 miles later in the heart of the spectacular Oregon coast. Its beauty earned it a spot as one of the eight charter members of the National Wild and Scenic River System. We offer 1/2 day trips on the “Nugget” section of the Rogue River.
Why Momentum on the Rogue?
Our half day trip on the Rogue is one of Momentum’s three original trips. It is a great introduction to whitewater, one of our backyard rivers, and one we know like the back of our hands.
The same guides that guide our trips throughout Oregon, Northern California, Idaho, and abroad run our “Nugget“ trips – guides with a minimum of 5 years of experience on many of the world’s most difficult whitewater rivers, and guides that truly enjoy sharing the outdoors and their outdoor experiences with others.
The Nugget run of the Rogue is a great trip for those wanting a fun float with a few bigger rapids. We may see blue herons, golden eagles, and probably a fisherman or two. A very pleasant 1/2 day rafting trip capped with Nugget Falls and Powerhouse rapids. The Rogue is a wonderful taste of whitewater excitement, and is great for the intrepid first timer, families, and those on a short time schedule.
Join us on the Rogue and see why it has marked the beginning of a whitewater addiction for many of our guests.

"2 words…beyond expectation! With so many ‘tourist’ type companies operating these days, we were hoping the experience would live up to the blurb. It was better! Special thanks to Arden who is an amazing lady….one of a kind. Within minutes of meeting, we felt relaxed, safe and knew we were in good hands. Our 2 girls (aged 7 and 8) loved their first ever rafting experience as did Mummy and Daddy. Arden could not have done more to make it a lifelong memorable experience for us all. Thank you again…Maria, Richard and the girls."
"Beyond! I had hoped that my kids first river experience would be a good one and Momentum far exceeded just “good”! From the first interactions via email for reservations…to our guide picking us up at our lodging, everything was excellent. Our guide was friendly, informative, compassionate, and understanding regarding the needs of not only my younger kids, but also the older couple who was on our trip. The whole operation was so dialed in that it ran without a hitch and without a lot of hoopla. Arden was out guide…fantastic…and she effortlessly took care of everything. I can’t recommend Momentum enough. I’d love to come back and do and multi-day trip!"
"Our family recently did the 1/2 day Rogue River rafting trip. I wish we had time to do the full day! Our day started with a minor snag but was very quickly fixed by Caleb who went above and beyond to make sure we were set up for a great trip. Our driver was Tina who was a delight to chat with to and from the rafting sight. She gave us some great tips on places to eat. Our rafting guide, Julio, was outstanding! He was so knowledgeable and funny. We were amazed at his stories and places he has rafted. We are looking forward to our next trip so we can plan a longer rafting trip. Thank you for a fantastic experience!"
