    Being the fisherman that I am, that looks like the perfect excursion. Riding some awesome trails and fishing the Umpqua in the early morning and evenings.

    Inspiring photos, got me thinking I need to make some plans.

    You guys aren't much for riding trail features are you? First you remove the table top then you avoid the perfect deer hucking opportunity. Sheesh.

    Beautiful stuff. Looks like a place I need to go.

    With 70 miles of trail split up into 10 sections, and about a dozen campgrounds evenly dispersed along the trail, your options are endles.
    Check out this PDF trail map from the USFS about the North Umpqua trail. The trailhead and campground info are also shown.

    http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/umpqua/publi...l-brochure.pdf

    As summer progresses, the lower 3-5 sections can get pretty well overgrown with Poison oak for those who are sensitive. The upper areas should be great in late July, so I'd recommend Hot Springs section + Dread and Terror section, and add Dear Leap on if you have the energy. Lemolo (above DnT) is also fun, and should be mosquito free by then.
    Be aware that the Tioga section will be closed this summer to repair some trail damage and to build a new bridge. It's a fun section, but there's plenty of other trail to enjoy.
    Have fun!!

    I was afraid that deer hucking photos would get this thread shut down!

    Maybe next time
