Location: Near Wolf Creek, Ore.
Distance: 5 miles round-trip
Quick hit: Legend has it that famed writer Jack London hiked this somewhat tough trail to the top of a peak while staying at the famous Wolf Creek Tavern. The highlight are volcanic greenstones that exist along the way and nice views of the surrounding countryside.
Directions: From Grants Pass, drive north on Interstate 5 for 17.7 miles to Wolf Creek. Turn left at the end of the off-ramp and drive about 500 feet to the next stop sign. Drive straight ahead across this road to Bridge Lane. Continue for 2.1 miles and look for the narrow road going up hill to the right (Road 33-6-26). The first mile is rough and steep but becomes more level for the last mile and a half. Drive up the road for one mile and turn right at the intersection to continue on Road 33-6-26. Continue for 1.7 miles to the trailhead.
