Twenty miles northwest of Crater Lake, Rough Rider Falls is just 30 feet high but the reward is in the journey. The 6.5-mile hike leads through ponderosa and fragrant cedar trees, passes a few unnamed falls and stops at the bottom, where a downed log provides a path to a small island in the middle of the river. It’s a unique vantage point to gaze at the stunning falls without another soul around, and rejuvenate before the return.
