We’ve partnered with Roadtrippers to provide a great way to plan a trip around Oregon. So start planning your next road trip to here, there or pretty much anywhere in Oregon.

The Illinois River Trail offers a trip through the north end of the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. It is a fairly difficult trail, especially near Bald Mountain, but offers breathtaking views of the rugged canyon. In late May through July various wildflowers are in bloom. There are camping spots along the trail and at either end. In addition, there are several side trails intersecting this trail . Fishing can be quite good at times, especially in late fall or early winter. No motorized or mechanized equipment (i.e. bicycles) are allowed within the Wilderness, and other sections are closed to motor vehicles from May 15 through September 15.

The trail features spectacular wildflowers, old-growth trees, rugged and steep river canyons, and a variety of wildlife.

Directions: From Grant's Pass: Travel south on Highway 199 (Redwood Highway) to Selma. Turn right at the Post Office on County Road 5070 (Illinois River Road) and follow it to Forest Service Road 4103. From the junction with Forest Service Road 4105, 4103 is dirt to the trailhead. High clearance vehicles are recommended beyond McCaleb Ranch.

Seasonal Access: Normally Accessible: Spring-Fall

Facility Type: Trail
