Rogue River Trail Access
The last few times down the Rogue I've been scouting out good points where the trail comes down to the river. This is in anticipation of our first float with the baby in a month. Baby will be on trail with Mom except for the flattest sections and there will be radio communication. We've got a good grasp of where the best meetup spots are but halfway down last time another family recommended Bunker Creek, across from Big Windy as a good place to come down from the trail to the river. This is about the only spot between Tyee and Horseshoe Bend as far as we know and will be a major help to our trip logistics if it works out. However, I have not seen it for myself and this point is about 7 miles in from the road so I don't really have time on day O to run there and back for my own eyes on experience.
If any of you can give me a second opinion on hiking down the Bunker Creek drainage 50 yards to be ferried across the river to camp, I would really appreciate it. Other crux days will be the five miles from Mule Creek to Halfmoon Bar where even the older, heavier (and slow walking) kids will be on the trail. If you can think of any useful access points or trail info I would appreciate it. I've done the river many times but never walked more than a couple miles of the trail. Thanks in advance.
