Welcome to Oregon where the scenic beauty of Glide and Douglas County await you.  Glide is located on Highway 138 and is the "Gateway to the Cascades".  Here you will find the "Colliding Rivers", part of the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway which includes the North Umpqua River and Rogue River, numerous waterfalls, campgrounds, Diamond Lake and Crater Lake along with much more. Year round activities such as hiking, mountain biking, rafting, fishing, camping, photography are available in this area along with winter sports of cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and boarding. 

Just 15 miles west of Glide is Roseburg, located in the center of the area known as the "Hundred Valleys of the Umpqua".  The I-5 corridor goes through the center of town providing easy access to the airports in Eugene and Portland.  Wineries flourish in the valley producing some of the finest wines in Oregon, many of which are considered world-class.  Roseburg is the cultural center of the county with art galleries, theatre, dance companies and music.  The summer concert series "Music on the Half Shell" draws big name entertainment and is free to the public.  Roseburg and the outlying towns in the Umpqua Valley all have historical districts and points of interest.

Many other events are held throughout the year including the Douglas County Fair.  NASCAR Winston West has a race at the Douglas County Fairgrounds and Speedway along with various stock and modified car events.  Several golf courses are in the area for your enjoyment, both 9 and 18-hole, private and public. Tourism Information/Maps and Brochures may be obtained at the Roseburg Visitor & Convention Bureau.

There are six covered bridges in Douglas county, the oldest one being built in 1925.  The longest is over 105 feet and each bridge has its own architectural style.  From Glide, all of these bridges are easily viewed, with the closest one being the Cavitt Creek Bridge just down Little River Road, which provides a scenic  6 mile drive along Little River to where Cavitt Creek flows into it.  Built in 1943 this 70' bridge was named after Robert Cavitt who was a pioneer settler in the 1880's.  The unique portal shape was designed to allow log trucks to cross the bridge.

The North Umpqua River that flows through Glide is one of the most beautiful rivers in the Pacific Northwest.  Wild and scenic, it is renowned worldwide for steelhead fly fishing in the summer and recognized internationally as a superb habitat for steelhead, Chinook salmon, small-mouth bass, trout and much more.  The North Umpqua starts its journey in the cold, clear snowmelt of the Cascade Mountains, flows into the Umpqua River which ends at Winchester Bay in Reedsport and the Pacific Ocean.  Not only fish abound on the North Umpqua river; you will see a wide variety of birds including osprey, golden and bald eagles, great blue herons and many other water and shore birds along with elk, deer, opossums to mention just a few.

In just a little over an hour and a half you can be at the beautiful Oregon coast which has almost 400 miles of pristine public coastline.  US Highway 101 takes you along The Pacific Coast Scenic Byway where you will drive along the coastline and through its quiet, quaint coastal towns such as Gold Beach, Port Orford, Bandon, Reedsport, Coos Bay and Florence, which are full of old world charm.  Peaceful beaches, tide pools, jagged rocks with nesting puffins and basking seals, historic lighthouses, spectacular sunsets and whale watching are just a few of the things found here.  Enjoy a meal of freshly caught crab in season or perhaps a fresh bowl of clam chowder along with one of the many microbrews or a glass of fine Oregon wine.  During the winter you can watch spectacular storms come in off the Pacific ocean with huge breakers that crash into the many rocks and cliffs and onto the beaches.  Many of the coastal towns have beaches with massive rocks that have had holes carved in them over the millennia and these create spectacular spouts of water into the air.  Most of the coastal towns have wonderful museums or interpretative centers, and Bandon and Reedsport are two that must be seen.  The Umpqua Discovery Center in Reedsport is fantastic and the local museum in Bandon is full of old-world charm and the most fascinating information that many of the locals do not even know.
