North Umpqua Trail (Calf Segment) -
Sections of the Calf Segment of the North Umpqua Trail climb away from the river. There are many grade changes throughout the length of the trail, though none exceed 20% in steepness, and most are under 15%. This trail is rocky and can be muddy in the winter months.
Along this segment, the trail stays near the river allowing hikers to hear its rapids. You'll pass along the edge of the Apple Fire on this segment. Here, the North Umpqua River stopped the fire from spreading farther north. Along this segment, you will see burned trees and the beginning of the natural regrowth process.
