This walk is a loop and about 4.25 miles with less than 400 feet of elevation gain. Allow two hours.
We will walk through a beautiful piece of rural Southern Oregon with nice views of the Rogue Valley and the surrounding mountains.
We meet at the Rogue Federal Credit Union East Medford Branch Parking Lot almost directly across the street from Albertsons another favorite meetup location.
We will begin our walk by heading east on a very lightly traveled portion of Barnett Road into the foothills south of RoxyAnn Peak and Prescott Park.
The only major climb is at about the 1.3 mile mark. Barnett Road turns south and climbs for about one quarter mile.
At the top is a small residential area. Turn right toward Dragonfly Vineyard. Santa Barbara Drive descends to Coalmine Road.
Turn right on Coalmine Road, and then right onto N. Phoenix Road to our starting point. The final stretch is busy at times. Be mindful and use sidewalks where they are available.
