TOKETEE FALLS WILD ROGUE WILDERNESS AREA Located approximately 58 miles east of Roseburg near Oregon Route 138, Toketee Falls is a waterfall on the North Umpqua River at its confluence with the Clearwater River. Toketee (pronounced TOKE-uhtee), is a Chinook Jargon word meaning “pretty” or “graceful.” Carved from ancient columnar basalt, Toketee Falls drops approximately 120 feet in two stages. With a reliable water flow on the North Umpqua River, the falls avoids the seasonal fluctuations of other creek-fed waterfalls in Oregon. This 84-mile wilderness area surrounds the Wild and Scenic Area of the Rogue River. It can be accessed near the town of Merlin. VALLEY OF THE ROGUE STATE PARK Off Interstate 5 near Grants Pass, this peaceful park is central to many area activities such as Crater Lake, the Britt Music Festival, and Ashland’s Shakespeare Festival. WOLF CREEK INN STATE HERITAGE SITE Take a step back in time and stay at the same hotel where Jack London finished his novel, "Valley of the Moon." Though room prices are a bit more than they were in 1883 when the inn was built, the charm of this hideaway has not changed. Guests will find a touch of modern day conveniences entwined with the historical richness of the oldest continuously operated hotel in the Pacific Northwest. WATSON FALLS A waterfall in the North Umpqua River basin of Douglas County, Watson Falls hurtle over a cathedral amphitheater wall of basalt, crashing into a long talus slope covered in moss and vine maple. The falls plunge over enough of an overhang that occasional gusts of wind can toss the water sideways or upwards in rare cases (usually later in the summer when there is less water in the creek).
