1. DOS MARIPOSAS VINEYARD AND LAVENDER FARM The Rogue Valley has over 150 wineries so it can be hard to choose which ones to visit. One that stood out to us above the rest was Dos Mariposas Vineyard. This winery offers a wide variety of wine to taste alongside a unique food menu, including our favorite option, the butter board made with the lavender they grow on the property. This winery is dog and kid friendly – they even built a designated play area for children including a sand pit, toys, and more so families can come enjoy the winery together. The lavender field is what really makes this winery stand out from others in the area. Rows upon rows of blooming lavender sit near the winery with Table Rock and the Rogue Valley in the background. For just $6, you can pick a bundle of fresh lavender!

2. SUNSET HIKE AT TABLE ROCK The Table Rocks are a must visit if you are a hiker, specifically at sunset. These unique formations were created by lava flow 7 million years ago! Upper Table Rock is the trail we hiked at 1.3 miles long with 700 feet of elevation gain. Once you are at the top of the plateau you can walk along the many winding paths that take you to the cliffs edge overlooking various areas of the Rogue Valley. There are no fees to park or hike and there are facilities at the trailheads. No dogs are allowed on this trail to protect the fragile vegetation at the top. Additionally, the lava rock found along the trail can be rough on paws making them susceptible to cuts and possible infection.

This adventure is even more unique for the fact that it is ADA-friendly and accessible to most (the guides always suggest calling prior to booking to discuss your abilities). The guides themselves do all the braking of the zipline so the rider gets to just sit back, relax, and enjoy the view!

3. ROGUE VALLEY ZIPLINE ADVENTURE There is nothing quite like flying above the Rogue Valley on a 1,000 foot zipline! Rogue Valley Zipline Adventure offers a few different tours – a 3-hour zipline adventure, a sunset zipline adventure, and a 9-hour Sip-Dip-Zip adventure. We chose the 3-hour zipline tour which takes you along five ziplines that increase in length as you move through the course. The final zipline is over 1,000 feet in length with
