East of Gold Beach in the Siskiyou National Forest, the Lower Rogue River Trail (#1168) is a 12 mile hiking route that runs through dense old growth Douglas Fir forest with occasional river views. It crosses several private property in-holdings, so make sure to stay on the trail. There are numerous creek crossings.

The hiking trail follows the Rogue River on the northern bank from the eastern upstream location near Agness to the downstream western location near east of Gold Beach at the end of FS335.

To reach the western trailhead from Gold Beach, head east on Jerrys Flat Rd for 9.7 miles. Turn left heading northeast on FS3310 for 0.2 miles crossing the bridge. Just across the bridge, turn right heading east on single-lane FS3335 (unsigned) for 2.2 miles. Veer right heading east down FS335 (unsigned) to the trailhead.

To reach the eastern trailhead follow FS33 into Agness. Turn west on the old Agness Road (County road 375) and drive past the old Agness Post Office to the trailhead at the Community Building.

Overall, Lower Rogue River Trail is the 16th most popular hiking trail of all 21 hikes in Oregon.
