NEAR RUCH, Ore. -- Our 'Hike of the Week' features a drive into the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest with a moderate/difficult hike into the wilderness.
Frog Pond/Cameron Meadows is roughly a 5.5 mile roundtrip hike.
There is significant elevation gain (1600 feet total) from the trailhead toward the pond and an even more noticable gain from the pond to the meadows.
Black Bears were spotted within a mile from the trailhead. Please use caution.

DIRECTIONS: From Seattle Bar at the inlet of Applegate Lake head south. After less than one-mile, make a hairpin right turn onto Forest Service Road 1040.
Continue heading south on 1040. About five-miles from Seattle Bar, turn left to stay on 1040 and follow it about another six-miles to the Frog Pond Trailhead. *Roughly .2 from the trailhead you'll encounter a 'stream crossing' which contains large rocks covering the road. You'll likely need a high clearance vehicle to pass over the washed out area. If not, you can simply park on the side of the road (a pullout) and walk the remaining part of 1040 to the Frog Pond Trailhead which will be on your left.
