The Applegate


If you follow Highway 238 from Jacksonville to Grants Pass, you’ll discover some of Oregon’s most beautiful pastoral scenery in the mountains and meadows and streams of the Applegate Valley. Visit Applegate Lake for swimming and water skiing, or enjoy a picnic stop at McKee Bridge, one of Oregon’s historic covered bridges, or visit some of the many award-winning family owned wineries.


The Applegate Valley Wine Trail now includes over 17 wineries. These wineries hold a signature wine and food event (Uncorked) twice a year, and many other tastings and events in between.


Along the Applegate Valley trail are several charming bed & breakfast inns, such as the Applegate River Lodge.
