This adventure will meet at the Rogue River Center at 210 Merlin Rd, Merlin OR., the home of Orange Torpedo Trips. They have a secure parking lot for you to leave your vehicle. Due to the physical nature of the adventure we recommend staying local the night before so you can arrive rested. We also suggest you make arrangements for the night after your trip. Here are a few of the local accommodations in the Grants Pass area.
Bybee Historic Inn 877-292-3374
Redwood Motel in Grants Pass 888-535-8824
Shiloh Inn Grants Pass Oregon 541-479-8391
La Quinta Inn Grants Pass Oregon 541-472-1808
The closest commercial airport is in Medford, Oregon, 34 miles southeast of the Rogue River Center. In the Medford Airport there are five car rental companies (Budget, Avis, National, Enterprise, and Hertz). We can also arrange a shuttle from the airport to your hotel in Grants Pass, although for most groups it is more cost effective and easier to rent a car. Please note: Our trips return too late in the day for us to ensure you will make a flight out of Medford same day. We suggest making reservations for the next day after the trip concludes.

Southern Oregon is known for its great summer weather. Weather here is generally so nice that the local tourism board has adopted the slogan “its the climate” to describe what makes Southern Oregon so desirable. However, in May plan on seeing some rain. Its very possible the entire trip will be rain free, but in may there is certainly no guarantee.
May High (F) 73 Low (F)41 Avg. Rainfall 1.21 in.
