Driving Directions

From Bandon:

From the center of Bandon (the junction of Highway 101 and 2nd Street), drive south for 22.7 miles, and then turn left onto Grassy Knob Road (This is 0.2 miles past the turnoff for Cape Blanco State Park).

Drive 4.5 miles through private timberland, and keep right at a yellow gate (After 4.2 miles, the road becomes gravel).

Go another 3.7 miles to the end of the road at the Grassy Knob Trailhead.

From Port Orford:

From the south end of Port Orford (the junction of Highway 101 and 9th Street), drive north for 4.1 miles, and then turn right onto Grassy Knob Road.

Drive 4.5 miles through private timberland, and keep right at a yellow gate (After 4.2 miles, the road becomes gravel).

Go another 3.7 miles to the end of the road at the Grassy Knob Trailhead.

Notes

  • You will enter the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest two miles before the trailhead: the road (FR 5105) becomes a track that is deeply rutted with tall grass growing in the middle on some stretches. You will need some clearance, and it’s best to avoid this excursion during wet weather.
