Roseburg Park Loop Description

Surrounded by mountains and resting along the banks of the South Umpqua River, Roseburg is truly a beautiful city. Like a string of green beads on a necklace, a trail system forms a figure-eight loop through several of the community’s parks.

A good place to begin is Roseburg’s visitor center. From there, the paved trail winds along the lush, tree-lined north bank of the river, through Deer Creek Park, paralleling the railroad as it goes. As it enters Gaddis Park, the trail departs from the railroad’s side and passes the park’s ballfields.

The trail ducks under I-5, where one can connect to the I-5 Trail to head north or south along the interstate, or continue heading west into Riverfront Park. Take time to enjoy the park’s natural landscaping, rich with with oaks, pines, and fir trees, or play in its eighteen-hole disc golf course.

At Centennial Drive, the trail branches; travelers can continue north paralleling the street up to Garden Valley Boulevard, or continue west into Stewart Park. With its sprawling 236 acres, the park is a crown jewel, offering a botanical garden, golf course, large playground, volleyball and tennis courts, picnic pavilions, and a vintage steam locomotive that can be explored.

After visiting Stewart Park, trail-goers can head back the way they came, toward I-5, and cross the river. The pathway passes just north of Riverside Park, known for its beautiful flowering plants and trees, and circles back to the visitor center.

Roseburg Park Loop Reviews

Simple ride-sketchy @ times

The trail had none of the issues the last reviewer stated from 2016. The ride around the park had a nice wide paved trail with no weeds, grass, etc. The city maintenance crew was out mowing and crawling brush/weeds. This part of the trail was just flat and boring. The views were of golfers and people enjoying the park. I didn’t like the fact many people allowed their dogs to run free regardless of the fact all dogs were to remain on a leash. My wife and I also took the connecting trail to downtown along the river. We DO NOT recommend doing this section. In the short one mile section there were over a dozen homeless camps, dogs running free and the smell of trash everywhere. At one point we had two dogs charge at us. Sad the city hasn’t done something about all this as the trail has lots of potential to be a beautiful trail.

Horrible trail

This trail is not worth your time to go. Parking is limited. Grades are very steep. Grass growing up through cracks. Tree roots lifting trail. Very narrow. Nothing nice about this trail at all
