North Umpqua Trail – Tioga Segment
Trailhead Elevation: 965 ft
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

The natural-surface, single-track trail follows the North Umpqua Wild and Scenic River and is popular for hiking and mountain biking. Beginning at Swiftwater trailhead, the first five miles are moderately rolling. The trail climbs steeply for almost two miles over Bob Butte, dropping down the other side to the power line. The trail then parallels the river along an old dirt road for two miles on a relatively flat grade. The last section of trail (7 miles) to Wright Creek trailhead is steep (uphill) and narrow. Rating: Varies: Easy to Most Difficult
Map location – T. 26 S., R. 3 W. The 16-mile Tioga segment is part of the 79-mile North Umpqua Trail managed by BLM and the Forest Service.
