Take a Hike: Rainie Falls Trail

You can find plenty of beautiful areas along the Rogue River, but few are as scenic as the Rainie Falls Trail.

SISKIYOU NATIONAL FOREST -- West of Grants Pass, you can find a path along the Rogue River that may just become your favorite trail in the area. 

We are talking about the Rainie Falls Trail in the Siskiyou National Forest. It is a nearly four-mile out-and-back hike and the views make it worth every step. 

From the first few feet of the trail, you can hear the rush of water in the Rogue River below. It leads you along the trail as you get closer to the falls. 

While you are on a relatively narrow walkway on the side of a canyon leading to the Rogue River, the trail is just difficult enough to help you work up a sweat, but not enough to convince you to turn back. 

Once you reach the falls, you may not be blown away by their size. However, their power is what is most impressive. Thousands of gallons of water are rushing through and you can stand right by the edge. 

The only negative is once you've taken the scenic hike out to the falls, you have two miles back to your car.
