Oregon Getaway: The Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway

"Two of Oregon's most beautiful and renowned rivers bookend this breathtaking tour through the thickly forested southern Cascades." And so these words in the official Oregon Tourism "driving guide" describe the incredible Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway. Also known as the "highway of waterfalls" this Scenic Byway is a 172-mile, partial loop route. There are impressive waterfalls that can be viewed along the backroads of this route. Susan Creek Falls, Toketee Falls, and Watson Falls are three favorites. Watson Falls, tumbling 272 feet, is the third highest waterfall in Oregon.

Driving along this stunning Byway takes a minimum of 5 - 7 hours and is best enjoyed over a couple days.
