Rough and Ready Botanical Wayside

Description:

This is a unique botanical area along Rough and Ready Creek. It harbors a multitude of rare or special-status plants endemic to the serpentine soils of the Siskiyou Mountains. The area has been a popular wildflower-watching spot for decades, and plant species are actively evolving here. The impetus to protect the area was provided by the Illinois Valley Garden Club in 1937.

Directions:

Drive south on Highway 199 from Grants Pass and proceed past Cave Junction. Approximately 4.5 miles south of Cave Junction, turn right on to the Rough and Ready Wayside Parking Area (FS 4201). The trailhead is located on the side opposite the highway. There are eight parking spaces at the wayside.
