“I promise not to make you do trail work on this amazing four-day adventure with Indigo Creek Outfitters” – Gabe Howe

1 August 2013 | Ashland, OR — This October join Indigo Creek Outfitters and Siskiyou Mountain Club for a fall adventure on the Wild and Scenic Rogue River. We’ll hike the 42-mile Rogue River Trail with lavish raft support, which means all you’ve got to carry is what you need for the day.

On the third and final night you’ll sleep in a bed at Paradise Lodge. And each day you’ll be gently guided by Siskiyou Mountain Club executive director and outdoor writer Gabe Howe (me). Fall is a great time for wildlife in the rugged Rogue River Canyon, and I have a lot of stories and knowledge to share.

I’ve been rafting this section of the Rogue for over twenty years, and hiking it for about ten. My time as a caretaker at the Rogue River Ranch got me far off the beaten path, and I can’t wait to share this experience.

The trip is well worth $1070 per person, and 10% of the proceeds go to benefit the Siskiyou Mountain Club’s efforts to restore historic trails and put area youth to work in the woods. This is your chance to have a load of fun and make a real difference to make sure trails like the one you’ll be hiking stay open for the next generation to enjoy.
