Hi Rogue veterans. We're thinking of heading up to the Rogue at the end of this week with the hope of picking up a no-show permit. Group size is about eight people. What do you think of our chances? Thanks!
8 is a tough sell, but it isn't impossible. You could go camp near the ranger house, and plan on showing up every day at 6:30 or so to find out. Even if that falls through, it is still a nice area, and you can do day runs above the wild and scenic.
A permit for 8 could be tough. The weather is supposed to be nice the rest of the week and there is only a low chance of showers over the weekend which won't help your chances. Pack up and be ready to go. Check for cancellations later this week. Openings often appear a day or two ahead of time.
