4 Day Hike – Raft Supported, Lodge to Lodge Trip

from $0.00

Lodging & Meals at Morrisons Lodge are included before your trip’s departure!

Join us for a wonderful escape from the modern world on a unique and rare digital detox vacation. For four days, your feet (and our outstanding guides!) will lead you on an adventure through a remote wilderness that will invigorate your soul.

These multi-day trips are offered from May through mid-June and September through October. From the first night at the historic Morrisons Lodge to the van ride back to where you began, this trip is an all-inclusive adventure of a lifetime. Enjoy our four-course gourmet dinner overlooking the Rogue River at Morrisons Lodge the night before your trip, and our Country Breakfast Buffet before your trip departure.

Our lodge-to-lodge raft supported hiking trips begin at Grave Creek trailhead about 30 miles west of the town of Grants Pass. The elevation at the trailhead is 689 feet and at Foster Bar the elevation is 474. There are ups and downs, forest and meadow, and a raft to ride whenever you please. The trip takes 4 days and 4 nights.

The Paradise Hike is a special version of this trip that includes a night at Black Bar Lodge and two nights at Paradise Lodge. As a bonus, you will float the Rogue River’s most exciting rapid: Blossom Bar. This is for people who have gone on our hikes and want to explore another itinerary on this famous trail, those that would like to try their hand a Blossom Bar Rapid, and those that want a few more miles on the trail (4 more miles total).

4-Day Raft Supported Hiking Trips – Superb!"We had a fantastic trip down the Rogue - hiking and the occasional ride on the rafts that carried our belongings from lodge to lodge. The guides - Dan and Bama - were outstanding, not only in their knowledge of the River and surroundings, but also their customer service. A perfect trip with old friends - and made new friends as well. The lodges we stayed in along the way were charming." ~Dream794161 via TripAdvisor
Wonderful Hiking/Rafting Adventure on the Wild and Scenic Rogue River"Our hiking club spent 5 days hiking and rafting down the 42 miles of the 'wild and scenic' portion of the Rogue River from just below Merlin to just above Agness, Oregon. Bald eagles, herons and ospreys were in abundance and we even had a black bear and mink sighting along the River. The Morrison Lodge in Merlin did a great job of outfitting our trip and our 3 river guides, Tessa, Dan and Bob, were absolutely peerless! Knowledgeable, so helpful and safety conscious, these 3 were our essential hosts to experience what is literally another world. If you love a wilderness experience, but moderated by rustic lodges and great homemade meals, you cannot go wrong!" ~Jeffrey & John Wallace
