Notes

Oregon Caves Old Growth Trail is a very easy kid friendly hike in Oregon Caves National Monument near Medford. This hike starts at the archway behind the Visitor Center. The monument says "this historic Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) trail climbs gradually among oak trees, over marble outcrops and through a grove of spectacular old growth trees. This is an ideal route to take from the Chateau to the main parking lot." There is no camping available inside Oregon Caves National Monument, but there are campgrounds nearby.

History
