The Row River Trail is a 15.6-mile rail-trail that follows the route of the now abandoned Oregon Pacific & Eastern Railroad line. The trail runs along the scenic shore of the Row River and Dorena Reservoir. Several quaint, covered bridges are located nearby, as is the historic Bohemia Mining area. The 3-mile section of the trail from Cottage Grove to the Mosby Trailhead is managed by the City of Cottage Grove, while the remainder of the trail is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
