Colliding Rivers

Colliding Rivers

At the confluence of the Little River and the North Umpqua River is a force of nature. Instead of gently merging together, this is where the two rivers meet head-on. It’s the only place in Oregon where two rivers meet this way and it’s something you should see.

Thankfully, there is a viewing area where you can take in all the action without putting yourself in danger. There are interpretive panels that give further details about the location, as well as bathrooms to accommodate those affected by the ever-crashing waters.

Watch two rivers collide. Colliding Rivers Viewpoint is just outside of Glide about 15 miles upstream from Roseburg along the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway. From I-5, take Oregon Route 138 from the west and U.S. Route 97 from the east.

There are a lot of other things to see and do along the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway.
