Zip It Good

Soar across the sky on a zip line and watch the ground race by below your dangling feet. The wind snatches your breath away and it’s easy to imagine your toes touching the treetops. Tucked away in the historic gold mining hills of Southern Oregon, Rogue Valley ZipLine Adventure brings summer fun to sky-high levels. 

Hike It - One Step At A Time

Many of Medford’s hiking trails are suitable for all skill levels, but still offer a challenge for experienced hikers. No Southern Oregon trail is more iconic than the Table Rocks. With two parts — the Upper and Lower Table Rock — the views from the cliffs stretch across the Rogue Valley. Whatever your experience level, make sure you wear sturdy shoes and bring water.

Prescott Park is another addition to Medford’s hiking and biking scene. The park has mesmerizing views, lookout points and 1,740 acres of hiking and mountain biking trails — a good way to break in your hiking shoes!

White Water Adventure, Everywhere 

There’s nothing more refreshing than the splash of cool river water against your skin. A rafting trip down the Rogue River gets your adrenaline pumping!

Your first time rafting? No worries! Medford has rafting and kayaking professionals who keep you safe during your rafting excursion. It’s time to don your orange life vest and take to the water.
