      Head east from Glide towards Crater Lake National Park on Highway 138 and you'll travel along one of the most beautiful highways in Oregon (and that's saying something). The North Umpqua section of the overall Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway passes by waterfalls and bubbling whitewater as it winds its way up into the Cascades, following the narrow canyon that channels the 'Wild and Scenic' North Umpqua River in the other direction.

      If you go:
      There are numerous trails to follow, leading through the dense woods to crashing waterfalls and other scenic views. Other popular activities include fly-fishing, kayaking and - at the risk of stating the obvious - whitewater rafting.
