South Valley Resource Area

Monday, July 11, 2016

Alt Names

Umpqua National Forest, Mosby Creek, Cottage Grove

Last Known StatusOpen

The trails found here are not much of a challenge, and many are dead ends. Most consist of overgrown logging roads, but if you look hard, you can find a real trail or two. This is not a very exciting place for OHV riders, and the only real action going on here is the timber cutting. The forest is thick and green and the peaks provide some decent scenery.
