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.
Parking is available at several points along the trail:
