    Route Description for North Umpqua Trail: Dread and Terror Segment

    Whether you are on a multi-day trek exploring the entire length of the North Umpqua Trail or are simply looking for a long and challenging day hike, the North Umpqua Trail: Dread and Terror Segment is a great route to explore. Be sure to plan for a pick up at the end of the route, as this is a one way trail and backtracking along it would make for a very long day outdoors.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the northeast and branch off to the left in order to get off the road and onto the North Umpqua Trail. Here, you will follow along the edge of the North Umpqua River, enjoying the sounds of the rushing water as you follow it through the wooded canyon.

    Sections of this trail can be washed out early/late in the season, so be sure to exercise caution when hiking near the water. Eventually, the trail will bend to the southeast, leading you past the majestic sight of Lemolo Falls. From here, it is a quick hike along the river to reach the endpoint of the route near Lemolo Lake.

    For those who don’t want to experience the entirety of this route and would rather visit the falls, be sure to check out our guide for the Lemolo Falls Hike.
