Southern Oregon is an amazing place, from the moment you land in Medford, you’re surrounded by adventure on all sides. If you like the water, you can hit the rapids. Or grab your favorite hiking shoes and take to the mountains. You can also fly…On a zip line, of course. If you’re thirsty for thrills, embrace the rogue spirit and start your next Southern Oregon adventure!

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 to wear sturdy shoes and bring water. Prescott Park is another option in 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

Ready to get your adrenaline pumping and feel the splash of cool river water against your skin? Don your orange life vest and take a trip down the Rogue River. Your first time rafting? No worries! Medford has rafting and kayaking professionals who keep you safe during your rafting excursion.
